Guess what? We had the final show and it was amazing! We were all so nervous just before. Megan’s legs were shaking and Anand had to keep going to the loo every five minutes! All our families had come to watch us and we kept peeping through the gap in the tent to see if we could see them. I saw my parents and my little sister Grace in the front row. They looked so excited it made my heart beat faster. But I was pleased to see them.

The music started and the show began. We all came riding out on our horses and the crowd went wild. It was brilliant. Dancer looked beautiful in his headdress and he seemed to know that it was the final show because he held his head up high and looked very proud.

When it came to my trapeze act I could feel my heart beating in my ears. I looked at Ted and he smiled and then I knew that it was going to be alright. We did our routine perfectly, I couldn’t believe it. In rehearsals, we always made one tiny mistake and I was really worried that we were going to mess up the finale, a trick called the Gazelle, but it was flawless. When we finished I gave Ted a kiss on the lips! He went bright red .

So I’ve graduated from Circus Stars. No more training. I’m going to miss everyone so much. But it’s been brilliant. Love Ella xxx
