Circus Skills

“Circus teaches kids how to take calculated risks rather than dangerous ones,and it will even help them develop skills to survive right throughout life.” "Learning to juggle takes perseverance, learning to walk on stilts takes courage, learning to get back onto a unicycle after you’ve fallen teaches you to bounce back”. Worldwide research shows benefits of circus arts programs in schools; how it’s being used as a vehicle of delivering physical skills and attributes, developing values, virtues and life skills, acknowledging that circus is a positive alternative especially for youth deemed “at risk”, and for those looking for an alternative to the more traditional options available.
