It’s your turn to run away with the circus. In this course you will explore the basics of clowning, juggling, and partner acrobatics. Start to understand the techniques of building your own circus routine, and be inducted into one of the oldest performing traditions. Dress to Move.

Juggling: Learn to manipulate objects into a routine. Great building block of coordination, focus, and determination.

Clowning: Explore the world of physical theatre, while learning the building blocks of comedy.  We will study how the “gag” works, and how to write comic material.

Partner Acrobatics: Giving and taking weight of a partner is key in this circus art. Work on creating shapes with counterbalance, and strength to defy gravity and look like Cirque du Soleil. The class will give a performance at the end of the session.
