Join us at The Liberi School for Circus Arts Camp with Laura Geilen this February break. Each day begins with a playful game, a fun circus warm-up and a short introduction to some new skills. Campers then rotate in groups through a series of circus learning “stations” to practice these skills. Basic instruction and practice includes tumbling, acrobatics, juggling, clowning and balance skills using rolling globes, tight wire, rola-bola boards, stilts and unicycles. We’ ll take a lunch break, have some outdoor time and come back inside for “choice time” where campers can work on a skill of their choosing.
