ABOUT MILTON ZAMUDIO
Born in Bogota, Colombia March 18, 1966, Milton Zamudio is a 5th generation circus performer. He first performed at the age of 10 with his father on the high wire. He continued to perform on high wire, on and off, until the age of 18. He discovered trampoline and swinging on the trapeze as a teenager.
In 1982, Milton ran away from home–home at that time being Joliet, Illinois–all the way to Sarasota, Florida. He met up with Jesus and Lucy Segrera and started to become a serious flyer. He performed in Colombia for three months from December 1983 through February 1984.
In July of 1984, Juan Vazquez hired him to join Ringling Brothers and start a second flying Vazquez troupe. In March of 1986 Milton caught the elusive 3 and 1/2 somersault to the legs. The Vazquez family had a triple, a 3 and 1/2 and a quadruple somersault, all in one act.
After a short but highly prestigious career, Milton retired in 1994. Milton is now a great friend to Circus Warehouse…and is inspiring a new generation of flyers.
