Starting of dreaming to be a circus performer

Starting of dreaming to be a circus performer

Born in 2001 in Belgium near Brussel, Benjamin felt in love with the circus world from an early age. Every year, he visited the circus Bouglione with his grandmother. Directly, he was surprised by this business full of stars, full of colours, with a beautiful atmosphere ! At this time, it was sure : he will become a circus performer !

Practicing to make his own hula hoop act

When he was around 8 years old, he saw a hula hoop performer and like this, he decided to practice this hard circus discipline. Every day, in his garden, he was practicing alone with his hula hoops to make his own act. Trough the years, he involved a lot and he could already create his act. In 2017, he had the opportunity to learn from his idol Alla Klyshta who was one of the best hula hoop performer in the circus industry ! Thanks to her, he learned a lot of tricks that he could add to his act.
