Life Skills Through Circus Skills
Children are naturally curious and are frequently motivated to try new things they’ve witnessed. This is especially true with circus skills! We offer a variety of educational outreach and arts-in-education programs for children of all ages to do exactly that; experience the circus through hands-on learning. Our programs offer challenges that help develop patience, self-discipline, and creative thinking and communication skills, without being overwhelming or frustrating. We will work with you to design a circus experience that suits your venue, your participants, and your budget. All programs can be customized to better fit your needs. Circus Splendiferous will provide all equipment and liability insurance for programs.
The Splendiferous Method
Our Circus Enrichment Programs are designed to complement and enhance STEM learning. We do this by incorporating concepts children are learning about in the classroom with related concepts from circus skills. Every subject is approached with a hands-on method that utilizes physical activity to broaden and advance childrens’ knowledge of how the world around them works. We challenge both mind and body simultaneously by engaging memory, critical thinking, and problem solving skills in conjunction with physical skills. Our aim is for children to leave our programs with a deeper understanding and cognitive recognition of how circus skills can inform life and how the two are interconnected.
Our technique not only challenges children as individuals (developing patience, self-discipline, and creative thinking skills), but it also seeks to challenge them as a group. We actively promote team building, communication, and social integration. We foster a positive and welcoming environment for children that helps prepare them for their futures. Our hope is that students leave confident, curious, and ready to pursue their dreams knowing they can succeed.
