Phoenix Youth Circus Arts Summer Day Camp
*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 06/19/2020
Our motto is "Everyone can join the circus!" And summer in Phoenix is the perfect time to do it.
At Phoenix Youth Circus Arts summer day camp, kids will learn juggling, balancing, acrobatics, aerial arts, and clowning. There will be three one-week sessions of camp in June. Each Monday through Friday camp session concludes with a show for family and friends. Kids can attend one, two, or all three sessions – it all depends on how much you want to learn and how much fun you can stand!
Circus arts provide the ultimate blend of fitness, creativity, and fun! Every kid regardless of age, gender, background, or body type can find things they love to do and share with others. Campers bring their own lunch and a snack each day. They will learn from experienced teacher/performer/coaches in a ratio not more than 8:1 and practice solo and ensemble skills in ways that build self-esteem, trust, and cooperation, in addition to strength, balance, and coordination. Best of all, they surprise and delight themselves with what they can do!
What exactly will the kids do? Campers will learn all the circus basics – juggling with balls, scarves, spinning plates, hoops, diabolos, flower sticks, and poi; acrobatics such as tumbling, partner balancing, mini-trampoline, and human pyramids; balancing on tight wire, rola-bola, unicycles, stilts, and rolling globe; aerial arts such as silks, Spanish Web, trapeze and lyra; and also clowning. Each camper gets to try all the different skills and then towards the end of the week they choose two skills to specialize in for the fabulous final show!
We hold camp in the gymnasium of Emerson Elementary School in Central Phoenix, with plenty of room to tumble and balance and juggle. Kids bring their own lunch and snacks to camp. We are an affordable, high-quality camp that prides itself on being accessible to a diverse group of kids from all over the region - nothing makes better friends than working together in the circus!
