Circus Arts is a fun way to practice a growth mindset and work on mastering skills that, though they may at first seem difficult, are easily attainable with steady practice. Circus skills improve strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, self-confidence and social skills. Students will be given instruction in a wide range of circus skills, including basic tumbling and acrobatics, ball juggling, diabolo (Chinese yo-yo), trick sticks, rolling globe, rola bola (balance board), poi spinning, and human pyramids. There will also be time for improvisational games and clowning exercises, with an emphasis on fun and play. Circus is an excellent bridge between sports and performing arts, and often interests children coming from these backgrounds or neither. With so many different skills, there is something in our program for everyone.
