Circus, being unique, visual and exciting, offers a solid foundation for learning
This one-of-a-kind education program takes learning in the classroom to a new level. Our teaching artists go into Sarasota and Manatee County schools engaging students in key academic subjects including Science,
Language Arts and Theater. These inquiry based lessons were developed to New Florida Standards with FSA impact/awareness/results. Designed to include students that have difficulty responding to other traditional forms of instruction, the education program introduces students of all learning levels and learning styles to this unique curriculum. Measurements to date demonstrate consistent benefits to retention rates and test outcomes. We follow the Kennedy Center Arts Integration protocol because it is known that “when students learn through arts integration, they are engaged in experiences in which they actively build and demonstrate their understanding of both the art form and the other curriculum area.”

The three basic kinds of circus acts that will be investigated: balancing, hanging and manipulation. This field trip combines lecture and demonstration with engaging activities allowing each student to physically attempt various circus acts. Students will be afforded the opportunity to learn through different types of learning styles. Students will be instructed by professional coaches and experienced Circus Artists. Concepts to be covered are Newton’s Three Laws of Motion and the necessary concepts to understand them. Students will move through a variety of stations including: tight wire, aerial trapeze, juggling, simple machines, manipulation as well as a science station for reflection.
