Circus is an exciting and fun way to learn movement competency while showing responsible behaviors while using unusual equipment.

There are many first steps in learning the art of circus performance. When learning a circus act, the student must first learn how their body responds to new experiences of spinning, climbing, inverting, twisting or balancing. Developing this awareness through acrobatic training  helps the student form a sturdy foundation for all future training. Introducing aerial disciplines to the student’s curriculum will begin very low to the ground. This way the trainers can be hands on as they instill import safety techniques. Explorations can be at the school or at the Sailor Circus Arena. Four classes will be offered, starting with experience on several circus apparatus. The student will then choose a ‘specialty’ that they will concentrate on for the last two classes. Skills that may be learned include: aerial, static, trapeze, tight wire and juggling.

In partnership with the Circus Arts Conservatory:

  • Students will begin unit on the circus arts/circus fitness.
  • Students will learn simple acrobatics through the use of the mini-trampoline, equilibrium through the use of wire walking,  and aerial awareness through the use of the triple trapeze.
  • Students will continue to improve the cardiovascular endurance as well as anaerobic strength, through our workouts in circus fitness.
  • Students will also continue to improve their levels of fitness by learning the proper warm-up/cool-down routines used by circus performers.
