Baltimore sideshow schools [Pictures]
You already knew Baltimore is full of freaks. But circus freaks? They're harder to find.
Look in the right places, and you'll find Baltimore has a small but colorful cadre of circus performers, drawn here because, well, Baltimore is almost as weird as they are. Here, we give you a sword swallower, an acrobat, an aerial artist, and a magician, each willing to teach you the soaring, death defying, grotesque, astonishing, tremendous acts that make the circus the greatest show on earth. -- By Rebecca Messner
