We’re very excited for this two week camp! Here’s how it works:
We spend the first week learning circus skills and putting a 1 hour show together, complete with full acts and costumes. The second week, we take the show on the road, performing for local community organizations such a senior centers, camps, and childcare centers Tuesday- Friday and busking on the commons.
