Circus Skills

Week-Long Club


The circus has come to town—not to perform, but to recruit! The circus has been around since 1768, inciting applause from hundreds of thousands of entranced audiences. During this five-day circus extraordinaire, master the art of juggling with homemade sock balls, stilt walking with cans, and hula hooping! Performers will focus on keeping their balance, eliminating distractions, and learning from mistakes. Explore contortionism and become a genius of balloon art creation - making dogs, monkeys, poodles, butterflies, swords, and hats! Somersaults, forwards and backwards, we’re anything but on our heads. Come join the circus!
