Description:
This unique circus class is designed to support girls (all those who identify as female) in gaining skills that build self-esteem, a positive self-image, and reduce anxiety. The age range is for middle school girls: 6th - 8th grade, ages 11-14. Each weekly meeting starts with a group check-in to set the focus for the day’s activities. Basic techniques on trapeze and/or fabric, along with other ground skills, such as juggling, acrobatics, tightwire, and mini-trampoline may be introduced throughout the session.

Combining a therapeutic approach with circus arts enables participants to develop life skills such as communication, perseverance, collaboration, and self-confidence. This group helps members learn to manage anxiety, and navigate social situations, all while having fun and learning circus skills!

This is a great opportunity for those who may have previously struggled to participate in group activities. No previous circus experience is needed, this is an introductory level class.

This group is instructed by Aethena Enzer-Mahler, LICSW with support from other SHOW instructors to help participants safely access the circus apparatus. Aethena is available to meet with students prior to class starting to answer questions, set goals and confirm that the class is a good fit.

For children looking to learn something new and exciting, the circus is a non-competitive, artistic, fun and safe discipline! All classes at SHOW focus on vocabulary retention, interpersonal life skills, and having fun in a safe environment. Circus is a great way to increase self-esteem, have fun, get in shape, improve focus and learn skills that will translate into every aspect of your child’s life. Circus for Fun, Circus for Life.
