The Joy Now Kids Circus let's you run away with the circus without having to leave home. Bravely tumble the road of acrobats, soar to new heights on stilts, enter the theatrical world of clowns and unlock the potential of creative circus in a safe and joyous way!
Circus performances have captivated the imaginations of generations of kids, but these are activities that don’t have to live in your child’s imagination alone. The Joy Now Arts Project offers a class experience that allows kids to explore circus, performing and visual arts in a controlled, safe, noncompetitive and fun atmosphere.
Every class includes stretching, an invigorating warm up, games and skill development. Using traditional circus equipment like stilts, balance boards, hoops, juggling gear, and more, your child will develop:
• Kinesthetic awareness
• Right/left brain integration
• Balance, reflex improvement, and gross and fine motor coordination skills
• Social skills such as working with a group and building confidence!
The circus arts’ blend of unique, dexterous and empowering skills simultaneously challenge the body and mind unlike any other. The variety of skills also means that everyone will succeed at something, so kids don’t juggle a sense of accomplishment
