Carmen Rosales – Juggling

Carmen Rosales, mother of five, is a lifelong circus performer. Born and raised in Mexico, like all circus children, Carmen has mastered a sweeping range of circus disciplines. In 1988, upon arrival to the US, she began a daring perch pole act with her husband, Jorge Rosales. Having never worked outside of the circus, her two favorite things about circus living are; being on the road and consistently being with her family. On the La Nonna tour, Carmen juggles with her husband and three of her sons; Jaret and twins Jonary and Jonathan. Science has studied and attempted to robotically replicate juggling which relies on a combination of vision, feel and memory. The Rosales Family smoothly display meticulous timing and remarkable coordination in their five-member juggling act, a reminder of what humanity is capable of.
