Circus School ASSEMBLY SHOWS

pop-up circus events

ABOUT THE SHOW

“Circus School” is a School Assembly Show designed to wow, inspire and educate your students. It is an exciting and unique combination of circus, theater, acrobatics, aerial artistry, comedy,  The set gives students the feeling that they really are AT the circus! The only thing missing in the gym is the popcorn!

Each performer, a seasoned circus professional, has designed their act with ‘active learning’ in mind: math magic (critical thinking), hula hoop (science of motion), tightwire (balance), human pyramids (geometry), juggling (coordination and teamwork), aerial (gravity), and more.

SHOW FORMAT

“Circus School” is a 30-min show followed by a lively 10-minute Q&A period with your students (and in our experience even teachers get engaged and ask “how did you do that?” questions.)
