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.
