NEW! KIDS CIRCUS CLASSES
DEADLINE TO REGISTER HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO APRIL 20!
(Online registration only.)
April 25 - June 6
4:30 - 5:30 PM
BEGINNER CIRCUS, Age 8-12
Through games, improvisation and training students learn the basics of several circus arts including juggling, balancing objects, spinning diabolos, riding unicycles and clowning. Students engage their creative voice as they build the prop work into solo or group circus acts. Character, audience engagement and performance will all be explored with silliness and curiosity.
April 26 - June 7
3:30 - 5 PM
INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED CIRCUS, Age 10-15
Designed for students who can juggle three balls and ride a unicycle without a spotter, this class provides focused, structured space to grow skills, meeting the needs of students at many different levels. Simultaneously, students will learn creative and engaging methods to present their tricks within the context of performance. In addition to solo work, we will create and develop as a group - juggling with partners, unicycling in patterns and performing with a team.
