About the Children’s Program: Intro to Circus Arts
Teaching Artists: Glenna Broderick and Liza Rose
Are YOU ready to join the CIRCUS?
Yes, your child can run away with the CIRCUS ….. and still come home for dinner!
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!
All our instructors are highly qualified and experienced in working with children. We break complex movements into learning steps that are challenging yet allow for the experience of success.
Circus arts is a performance art, athletic and artistic, we encourage children to be creative with the materials and we demonstrate and perform for each other throughout the classes.
