A fabulous show that I'd book again! Garden City Elementary, Richmond
I have been teaching since 1988 and NEVER have I attended such an outstanding performance that not only kept us all entertained, but sent a hugely impacting message to every person in our gymnasium. Gordon Terrace Elementary, Cranbrook
Our whole staff thought Flyin' Bob was excellent. What was fantastic was that his show was suited for both primary and intermediate students. His skills were at a high level, he was very organized, came early, and had great communication with staff members. We loved the show from beginning to end and would highly recommend Bob to any other elementary school. Parkcrest Elementary, Burnaby

From balancing a stack of chairs on his chin to a spectacular and nearly disastrous high-wire walk, Flyin' Bob takes audiences on a 50-minute search for balance. Through juggling, clowning, unicycling, acrobatics, wire walking, audience participation, comedy, and character, Be The Circus! stresses the importance of physical activity, concentration, peer support, taking chances, community, and the value of failure as well as success.
