Philip Astley(1742-1814)

The modern circus traces its heritage to Astley's Amphitheatre, a riding school that Astley founded in London primarily featuring equestrian centered entertainments.  This advert mentions "The Grand Trampoline Tricks" and "Horsemanship, Dancing and Tumbling and Dancing by the Whole Troop".

Fine.
