After-school Circus Arts for elementary schools, in association with Pacific Sport
In this class we will explore how to juggle with scarves, balls, clubs, poi, diabolo and hula-hoops, and how to spin plates. We will also have fun with special activities like balance boards, unicycles, slackline, balloon sculpting and face painting. We will be creative and in motion!

Why Circus Arts?
Circus Arts cover a vast range of skills. I focus mainly on manipulation: juggling, poi and hula-hoop. Beyond the physical benefits, learning a new skill helps keep the mind active and strengthens neurological pathways, thus reducing the risk of dementia. It focuses the mind in a meditative state, fosters inner peace, increases self-esteem and cultivates persistence. It also lessens some symptoms of repetitive strain injury and balances bilateral motor skills. Like all performance arts, circus arts let you release your creativity.
