FOR KIDS & TEENS
Circus Skills = Life Skills.
Circus Moves programs offer evidence based activities to promote positive youth development in an environment which values cooperation over competition. Circus Moves creates inclusive spaces where youth feel safe to engage in positive-risk activities that invoke creativity, provoke self-expression, and evoke self-confidence!
Visit our photo gallery or YouTube channel to see kids in action.
Circus learning promotes positive gains in physical, social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual development. Check out the Benefits of Circus page for more info about why #circusworks. If you really want to be a circus nerd, head on over to the Circademics page to read academic journal articles!
After-School Program at the Newtown Community Center
Our Newtown Community Center classes have ongoing enrollment and run in conjunction with the NCC session calendar. Circus skills are progressive and no two classes are ever the same as kids continue to develop and train the skills in which they are most interested. Register by calling 203.270.4349. Circus Moves students receive member rates.

Mobile Circus Programs
There are a variety of options available for on-location youth and family programming, from one-time workshops (for up to 50 kids!), to multiple-class series and residencies. Content can be just for fun or themed specifically for S.T.E.M. content, reading readiness and literacy, body-image, adulting (for teens), social-emotional learning, team-building, etc. Contact Cynthia to find out what we can do for your kids!
