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.
