All photos by Norman Schimmel SOARING STARS Continuing the celebration of its 65th year, Sailor Circus recently presented its spring Legacy show under the Big Top on Bahia Vista Street in Sarasota. The Sailor Circus Academy is the oldest youth circus in the United States, its web site points out. It is an afterschool training program for students ages 8 to 18. The youth spend countless hours each week working with dedicated coaches and volunteers, the website notes.

Staff Photographer Norman Schimmel attended one of the final performances of the Legacy show, where he recorded feats of these extraordinary young people. % STUDENTS SHINE IN SAILOR CIRCUS PRODUCTION Staff Reports
