CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:
BIG LITTLE CIRCUS: In this exciting weekly class children exercise fine and gross motor movement and gain social skills as they balance peacock feathers and spinning plates, juggle scarves, stand on globes, walk the tightwire, surf the balance board, and play lots of skill building games. PreK Ages 3.5-5yrs

CIRCUS MOVES: Big kids and little kids learn to support one another using strengths unique to their age/ability and gain confidence in themselves and each other as they work through the challenges of learning circus skills including juggling, plate spinning, balancing objects, balancing ON objects, balancing on each other, and much more. Classes include group lessons as well as offering kids opportunities to specialize in the skills they prefer and go deeper into skill progression. Children compete only with their own personal best while supporting one another in doing things they never before thought possible. Session ends with a show of skills!


STILTS/ZANCOS Practice ground techniques including yoga poses, inversions, getting up & down, shapes, and more. Standing techniques focus on synchronized movement, choreography, dance, and navigating a variety of obstacles and terrains. Each class begins with proper falling and safety techniques before students strap in and stand up and ends with spotted falling onto mats. Class size is limited to 8 students. Ages 8-12. Session ends with a show of skills!
