The National Circus project recently set up shop at Baylis School to provide students with an opportunity to enjoy everything that is the circus! The weeklong project began with a spectacular schoolwide assembly and throughout the week students from all grades participated in exciting hands-on workshops. Students tried their hands at juggling, plate spinning, balancing, devil sticks, diabolo manipulation, and more! In addition, fifth graders received training in advanced skills such as stilt walking, clowning, hula-hoops and balancing. The circus artists also worked with the fifth graders to develop and choreograph their new skills into incredible solo and group routines, culminating in an amazing, one-of-a-kind Student Circus show held at the end of the week. The fifth grade put on an unforgettable performance! A special thank you to the Baylis PTA for sponsoring and coordinating the event!

National Circus Project is an educational outreach/arts-in-education/external physical education/external cultural arts program that works closely with schools to cultivate acrobatic skills in young students through workshops, performances and productions.
