Circus Workshop: Fun, Effective In-School Programs in Calgary & Edmonton

Posted on by @Dm1n in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Program directors are always looking for exciting new in-school programs that will appeal to the whole school, whether it’s K-6, Jr High or High School while fitting in their often limited budget. I really think that circus workshops can be one excellent solution. Just yesterday Cynthia Engelbracht, Programing Coordinator at WO Mitchell School commented that our program was the “Best residency ever!! WO Mitchell loves you 🙂 Thank you!”

Our workshops run as a 30-minute, one hour (1) or two hours (2) program. Students will enjoy a fast paced exciting program that includes a show with demos and a history of each prop, a warm-up activity, hands-on coaching, a cool-down activity, and optional activity sheets that can be left with teachers.

We focus on active learning through play, exploring the idea of difficult challenges and coping strategies around small failures in a safe space. Children explore a wide variety of circus skills while building dexterity, creativity, hand-eye coordination, and confidence. Workshops include all circus props, one coach, and a small sound system for fun circus music to set the mood.
