Circus based extra mural class for children

Classes that aim on introducing aerial circus and movement training for children, ages 6 to 13 allocated accordingly, as an alternative fitness and art.

Incorporates acrobatics, aerial & theatrical art

The classes are orientated within the main areas of the circus based art. These are acrobatics, handstand training, and flexibility, aerial and theatrical art.

Circus classes are a powerful agent in education, producing knowledge and awareness of the body, self-activated movements, understanding the incorporation of rhythm and movement and promoting interchange of ideas (creativity) and experiences.

Working as a group participants learn about movement and the body, discipline and concentration, teamwork, social skills and respect for peers.

Classes are aimed for all diversities of children. These non- competitive and non- threatening activities provide children with different choices allowing for enhanced participation and enjoyment within physical based education. This “game” based approach facilitates automatic participation and the learning of new skills. All classes and apparatus are presented along there developmental age group as a "just right challenge", to stimulate and develop autonomy, solidarity, self-esteem, physical fitness, communication and adaptability.

Composition of classes

The four segments of circus training will be divided to obtain an hours session followed by introduction to flexibility.

Classes may also be changed to allow for more specific work in a workshop format depending on weak areas.

Second Segment-Contact work (Pyramids, hand in hand, handstands, improvisation)
Third Segment- Aerobatics (Trapeze, Climbing rope and Silk, Liras)

the Circus and just have fun.

Kids will go through stations where they will try the different disciplines in:
- Acrobatic

We offer 2 to 3 instructors and all the gear and safety for the workshops. We can also add some speciality acts during the party so kids and parents can enjoy the party. (Extra)
