Imagine a circus that pops out of a suitcase and teaches your students about living with compassion and following their dreams. Our school assembly and family theater show The One-Man Circus in-a-Suitcase has been performed over 500 times for enthusiastic audiences over the past twenty-five years.
Imagine another kind of participatory, educational circus that offers your students life lessons and integrates school curriculum through the experience of learning real circus skills. We design and lead in-school residencies programs, including integration of circus, yoga, world culture, anatomy, life sciences and
more. Some of the titles include Circus Around the World, Circus Poeticus, Circus Musicus, The Time Machine Circus, Animal & Insects, and The Human Body.With Circus Minimus and students can runaway to join the circus and be back in time for math class!
As CircusYoga for the Whole Family we've been hosted over forty-five times by the Kripalu Center in Lenox, MA. This is the largest and best place in the US to explore the yoga of life. Year after year families return to play, learn and connect with us and their tribe of CircusYogis. Over 100 teachers have been trained in these methods and continue to teach them around the world.
Many schools have hosted our Family Fun Nights inviting parents to participate in their kids’ enrichment. We are award-winning and seasoned educators committed to educational excellence. Contact us today for a DVD and packet featuring our menu of educational offerings. We would be happy to discuss the specific curricular goals of your school—and bring the circus to your community.
