Introduction to the Circus Arts
Our introductory program to the circus arts allows your child to learn the basics of circus acrobatics while having fun. Your child will not only learn the basics but will develop their strength, flexibility, gross motor skills, spatial awareness, as well as improve their self-esteem and gain confidence in a fun and safe environment.
Children will learn and explore the basic techniques of circus in the following four major circus disciplines:
Balancing (beam, wire, ball, Rola-Bola, etc.).
Juggling and object manipulation (scarves, balls, rings, clubs, diabolos, devils sticks and spinning plates).
Acrobatics (on the floor, on a mini and large trampoline) front and back rolls, cartwheels, roundoffs, walking on hands, etc.
Aerial (fixed trapeze, silks, hoop, Tarzan rope, etc.).
Circus is done barefoot and with fitted clothing (tank top and leggings or t-shirt and shorts). Bring a reusable water bottle with your childs name on it.
Advanced and Elite Circus Groups:
The Advanced and Elite groups are reserved for a small group of young people who must undergo and pass an evaluation.
The goal is to offer these young people a springboard to further their skills and their passion for circus arts to eventually join the National Circus School. Over the years, 5 circus artists from our school have been selected by the National Circus School and some of them are enjoying their career and have achieved international success.
