Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Pedro Reis began circus training at the age of 12 at a local YMCA, developing his skills on the flying trapeze. He later went on to help found the first circus school in South Africa. Today he is going to tell us about the new organization the American Circus Alliance, a new organization dedicated to advocating for the circus arts in the U.S.
