Circus Arts Conservatory

The Circus Arts Conservatory Education Program

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.”

  • Engaging students directly and immediately, our circus-artists demonstrate principles of science, engineering, art, math, technology, communication, and theater
  • Capturing students enthusiasm first, we introduce a new perspective of key academic subjects through our distinctively engaging educational programs’ approach
  • Utilizing inquiry-based lessons, students learn to develop solutions through a question and analysis process
  • Encouraging creativity and introducing students to the circus arts and sciences, we accommodate all levels and learning styles, in a safe environment
  • Helping students recognize the importance of science, technology, and mathematics, we provide a kinesthetic learning experience
  • Following the Kennedy Center Arts Integration protocol, we subscribe to the idea 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”
  • Having instructed more than 30,000 students in 32 elementary and middle schools, the Circus Arts Conservatory is proudly offering this educational experience since 2012
  • All lessons comply with Florida State Standards (FSA)

Lorenzo and his Teeterboard

Program description

Lorenzo has just been hired by the Circus Arts Conservatory in Sarasota, Florida to perform his world famous Teeterboard Act. Lorenzo hopped on the first plane to the U.S.A. and arrived safely; however, his custom handmade teeterboard is held-up in customs. Lorenzo’s American teeterboard debut is scheduled for tonight, and he needs a custom teeterboard to perform his act for the sold-out show.

The arts integrated activity is a STEAM design challenge.  Learners will design and build a teeterboard for Lorenzo so he can perform his act and the show may go on!

  • All supplies will be provided by The CAC.
  • This exploration can also be presented digitally.
  • Lesson plan is provided.
  • Virtual PD upon requested.
