Mark Hayward is a World Yo-yo Champion, a member of a World Champion Juggling Team, and a Spintop Champion. His mom is proud. Mark has traveled the world with a yo-yo on his finger (well, mostly in his pocket), and has made appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman twice, America’s Got Talent, and the NBC Nightly News (without committing a crime). Someday Mark hopes to perform for both the President and the Queen. Not being a convicted criminal should help with that.
Jonathan Burns always thought he was special. He was the kind of kid who would put his leg over his head at the family reunion or perform musical armpit farts to impress the girls. In 2004, contorting his body and impressing people with his unusual talents became his full-time job. Since then he has performed at over 250 colleges & universities, at festivals across the US, Canada, China, Ireland, New Zealand, Switzerland, & the UK and was recently featured on the Jay Leno Show & the Late Show with David Letterman. When he’s not performing he can usually be found in an airport terminal or spending time with his lovely wife & daughter (I guess the armpit farts worked!).
Jenny Hill writes, creates, teaches, performs, and believes only boring people get bored. If you leave your backyard empty for too long, she may start a Hoopoetry Circus there.

Born in Alaska, and raised in Columbia MO, Evan Young began juggling at the age of 14. After four years of driving his teachers crazy by being the class clown, Evan enrolled in Circomedia International Circus School in Bristol England. Evan put his international training to use on the streets of Boulder Colorado, entertaining live crowds. He considers his real alma matter to be the streets, and today street performing remains Evan’s favorite venue. Evan really loves his job for all the right reasons; the joy of pleasing people and making their day more fun, travel, off-beat schedule, lots of attention, and the chance to show off otherwise useless skills.
