About the event
9am -12pm Mon-Fri @ MCWS
Friday, Aug 18th @ 5pm-6pm PUBLIC PERFORMANCE @ CONGRESS SQUARE PARK
Circus is attention. Circus is patience. Circus is creation and balance and patterns and looseness and exuberance and showing off and supporting partners and silliness and serious fun! Students learn the basics in several variety arts including: juggling, unicycling, balancing objects, spinning diabolos and plates, etc. The class reduces the arts to their essential components: props, bodies, gravity, resistance, audience, etc. We will focus on techniques, experimentation, interactive performance, and (most importantly) messing up spectacularly! Circus skills help develop body awareness, coordination, focus, creativity, social connection and confidence in a non-competitive environment. The space is supportive, welcoming and safe: we learn through many forms, including play and practice.
Camp designed for grades 3 through 6
