We had a special guest helping Kostia while we were at the Zacada Circus School. Another past Cirque Du Soleil performer, Oleg Ouchakov, was out on the floor sharing his excitement and expertise with the acrobats and coaches.
Oleg is originally from Siberia, Russia and has been both a competitive acrobat for the Soviet National Team and a performer in the Moscow Circus. He has also been a performer in the Mexican Circus and speaks Spanish as well as Russian and English. His background in CDS comes from traveling with Quidam for five years and then he was a featured performer in the Canadian television show "The Fire Within" highlighting the creation of the traveling show Veraki which he then traveled with for several years. Oleg has recently left Cirque Du Soleil behind and joined the team at the Zacada Circus School offering his expertise. Lucky for them and us.
We would like to say thank you to Oleg for jumping in and helping us out on the Friday night of the training camp. We hope to be able to put his knowledge and experience to good use in the next while as we develop acrobatic gymnastics in Ontario.
