Last Friday 14th March ABC 666 Canberra broadcast their Breakfast program live from our training space in Chifley.
Presenter Philip Clark and his producers took their show on the road and ran away with the circus. Warehouse trainers Nathan and Piri and put a group of early-rising participants through their paces, entertaining our guests with demonstrations in tumbling, adagio, hoop, juggling, diabolo, German wheel, trapeze and tissu over the course of the morning. Not wanting to miss out Phil and his team dived right into the action joining in pass juggling and braving the German wheel. Listeners of the station were invited to come along for a BBQ breakfast and many Warehouse parents and participants also dropped by.
