2 artists-in-residence will be here all week to instruct students in "hands-on" workshops during their regularly scheduled PE and/or Wellness classes in the gym. Not to worry, all activities are safe, "ground"-based circus skills selected to be age/grade developmentally appropriate. (No shooting cannons or flying trapeze high above the ground in our gym!) Each class in our school will receive at least 50 minutes with our 2 circus artists.
Circus skills align beautifully with many of the Physical Education national and state standards with non-contact physical activities, improvement of self-images, improvement of eye-hand coordination and balance, achievement due to persistance, practice, and perserverance, and development of physical fitness! Additionally, cross lateral movement such as juggling has been shown to improve brain function.
