This Is How It All Began.
At the age of 14 Vladimir started his circus career where he trained to be a horseback trick rider. After years of perfecting this art he then felt he needed to push his limits higher so in 1989 he decided he would create an act that never had been seen on any circus or anybody's imagination. This unique act took him three years to perfect and as soon as he presented it to the general public it wasn't long until he was nominated and won a very prestigious Circus award in Moscow in 1992. Shortly after becoming very famous for his achievements he travelled Europe and whilst working in Ireland he met the love of his life alike minded circus lover Jacqueline courtney. After some time Jacqueline gave birth to their daughter kourtney who is currently performing at Circus Vladimir. Within weeks of kourtney being born Vladimir was due to appear on the Guinness world record's as he was the only artist to perform his own unique act.
In preparation for the record-breaking show he worked his act live and at 11 m high, risking his life with no Safety net... he fell.
Surprisingly he survived the fall but he was left in a coma for 3 days. Spending months in recovery he knew he could never return to the air but his love for Circus still carried on and with his newly born daughter Kourtney, he knew he could teach her everything he knew about love, life and circus. Now that his 19-year-old daughter Kourtney has come of age and totally shares his passion for circus he believes now is the time to share what he has learnt over the past 40 years by bringing some of the best and unique circus artists that have never been seen in the UK.
Vladimir, Kourtney and the whole family can guarantee that Circus Vladimir will be a circus experience that will stay in your hearts forever
