1 WEEK OF CIRCUS CAMP
1 WEEK OF CIRCUS CAMP
Welcome to Circus Camp! This unique day camp for kids ages 9-14 offers your child a chance to learn fun circus skills from some of New Orleans' top professionals. You kids will learn...
Acrobatics on the floor and in the air, trapeze, hammock, silks, Spanish web, lyra, the sky is the limit – well – of course we need to cover the basics, and most of all safety first and foremost! Acrobatics is ALL core strength and taking to the air will develop that upper body strength too!
Equilibristics, the art and craft of balancing yourself, on rola-bolas, on globes, on stilts (from bucket stilts to high stilts), on unicycles and on the tight wire. Discover the beautiful feelings of being and moving in balance!
Juggling and Prop manipulation, scarves, balls, rings, flower sticks, Chinese yo-yos, spinning plates, swinging poi, so much FUN and the BEST cross brain training! Cross-lateral activities, in which you cross the mid-line of your body, are said to help synching your brain hemispheres, juggling builds “grey matter” – and focus for sure!
Clowning and physical comedy, while we hone our acrobatic skills, our balancing and prop skills, we might discover a clown that has to be set free – so we might just do that!
