Winterskol Aspen 1966

Spent winter at Aspen, first flips on snow.

Put them in the Circus shows we did. The 60s took the wraps off many things and encouraged fresh perspectives. We embraced rock and roll and began a long journey to actually play music on a trampoline in our show.

Our story encounters a fabulous time to be a performer and try and innovate. These Chronicles of a Hot Dog Acrobat, hope to shine some light on how it happened.
