CIRCUS ARTS ~ CLOWN ~ MOVEMENT AND PLAY

"We don't stop playing because we get old,
we get old because we stop playing."

This introduction is perfect for beginning to intermediate students, and starts out with the basics of juggling and balance.

Juggling: ďŌ canít get this, I canít do thisÖHey! Iím doing it!Ē We start out by learning the basic 3 ball pattern, then move into simple variations; 2 person take-aways, simple and complex passing patterns, and multiple objects. Juggling takes persistence, but it's fun, enjoyable, and is a skill like bicycling or swimming; once you learn it, you have it for life. Did I mention that itís fun?

Balancing: Most of us have already learned the most difficult balancing act we'll ever know - we can already walk, an act that took the first year or two of our life. Having learned it, we've forgotten just how much effort and concentration it took.

What we'll do in this class is far easier; balancing objects on ourselves (from brooms to spoons), and ourselves on objects (balancing on chairs, on the rola-bola and the unicycle). 

There's nothing quite like the satisfaction of suddenly doing something that had been thought unlikely, if not impossible.
