  • Description

    The "Flying Carrolls" are unique among circus acts-not only because they come from the United States, and are the only American flying act, but because they are women. They're the only all-female flying act in the world.

    They are also sisters-Eleanor, Donna and Gaynor Carroll-and the only concession they make to superior masculine strength is the presence of a male "catcher" in their routine.

    Gaynor's husband is their coach and he has the girls on a weight-lifting programme to build up the strength necessary to perform on the flying trapeze.

    They are currently doing their first season with big-time circus, and professionals in the business predict they are heading for super-stardom. This prophesy is based largely on the abilities of Gaynor-who is the only woman in the world to do a double somersault during he routine. She says that before the season ends in October she's going to make it a triple.
