Why circus arts?
Circus arts if quite vast. I am mainly focusing on manipulation; juggling, poi, hula hoop. Beyond the physical benefits, learning a new skill helps keep the mind active, strengthening neurological pathways, thus reducing the risk of dementia. It focuses the mind in a meditative state, foster inner peace, increases self-esteem, and cultivates persistence. It also lessens some symptoms of repetitive strain injury, balances bi-lateral motor skills. Like all performance arts, circus arts let’s you release your creativity.
