Dominic is a 16 year old who has been juggling since he was 12. Dominic has taught himself to ride the unicycle, juggle, walk on a slack line, and diablo.
Dominic is forever trying to find a way of performing and from doing so has landed himself the opportinity to travel with a cIrcus.
The circus will allow Dominic to perform and travel with them on the condition that he has a caravan of his own to live in whilst doing so. Dominic so wants to perform and entertain and this opportunity would be fantastic for him, therfore we are trying to raise the funds to buy him a caravan.
Dominic has tried his best to get work since turning 16 in May in order to purchase the caravan himself but due to his age he has been unsuccesful as he is considered to be a school leaver.
Dominic however left school in 2015 due to severe bullying and he has since been home schooled. Despite years of being bullied by his peers for his talent Dominic remained focussed on his dream of one day being able to perform in the circus. Dominic on a daily basis enjured being attacked, having his belongings taken, had ethanol thrown in his face and constant name calling. All because he wants to be a juggler!
Dominic isnt your typical teenager. He doesnt play game consoles, he doesnt spend all his time in his bedroom. Dominic wants ro juggle! He wants to earn money, stand on his own two feet, entertain people. But first he needs your help.
Dominic was given the opportunity to perform with a local circus when it was touring which was valuble experience for him. It was however only a small performance in 1 show so to be recognised by another traveling circus and given the opportunity to tour with them and have his own act is amazing!
The circus begins touring in the middle of September so we only have a few weeks to raise the funds.
I know its a big ask and any donation no matter how small would mean the world to Dominic. It would mean he has the opportunity to prove to everyone that dreams really can come true and that bullies never win.
To see Dominic performing please click on the link. This is Dominics first and only performance so far with a circus. Please help him to have the opportunity to travel with the circus and live out his dream that hes worked so hard to get. Circus Star
