Arron Sparks is a professional circus performer who discovered his passion for juggling through the 1990s toy YoYo craze. He joined a local after-school juggling club age 12 not because he was interested in juggling but because the word on the street was that the best YoYo’er in Southampton went there!
A decade later, after graduating from the National Centre for Circus Arts, his unique one-man show combining juggling and YoYo’ing was snapped up by agents and Arron toured the world.
Today Arron is an associate artist with the world-renowned Gandini Juggling, a company that is reinventing and reinvigorating juggling for the 21st Century – and he’s looking forward to introducing the joys of juggling to a new generation.
“I’m really looking forward to bringing juggling to a young audience. Juggling is often thought of as being difficult and impressive. Babies and toddlers will have none of these preconceptions so in my mind I will have to work harder to impress them. Juggling is a visual feast but I’ll need to ensure my performance fires all the senses, so as well as thinking about colour and movement, I’ll take into account sound and touch.”
