The circus, being a unique world within a world, has developed a language of its own. With a mixture of people from many different countries living and working together words have been created or adjusted to meet the needs of the circus life. Students will learn where certain words and phrases come from, for instance, did you know that “Hold your horses!” is from the circus? When the circus parade would come to town in the 1800’s, there would be a person that would call our ‘hold your horses!’ to warn riders that the horses would likely be afraid of the loud noise.

Class will be taught using Zoom.
