Big Top Under Your Roof Top - Circus Harmony Summer Camps
By: Circus Harmony
Circus Harmony's popular summer camps are usually held in the school's home ring at City Museum. The school was halfway through their spring class session when CoVid-19 hit the St. Louis area. In true The-Show-Must-
Jessica Hentoff, the Artistic/Executive director of Circus Harmony said, "Circus has always been about joy, triumph, and laughter demonstrated through strength, flexibility, and balance! We've always taught our students to be creative and resilient. All the life lessons we teach in our school- especially persistence, responsibility, and teamwork- are exactly what is important now, in the middle of a pandemic!" Although Circus Harmony won't have your child swinging from the chandelier, they will keep them active and learning actual circus arts. Students will also learn important life skills like focus, perseverance, and presentation. Jessica feels that, "Circus folks, whether they are 8th generation or new circus students, learn to be creative problem solvers."
Just because the class is offered online does not mean your child will be sitting in front of a screen. This is a very active camp that will challenge your child to improve their strength, flexibility, and hand-eye coordination while they have fun and learn real circus acts. The classes are offered on the interactive Zoom platform so that Circus Harmony's professional teaching artists can make corrections and compliments. Each week will end with a Spotlight Session where the campers can show off their newly learned skills.
Registration is open now. But the kids aren't the only ones who can run away and join the circus! In the evenings, Circus Harmony will also be offering circus classes for adults so the whole family can be strong, flexible, creative and well-balanced.
When: June 1 – August 7, 2020
Cost: $125 per session
