PE 1615: Introduction to Circus Arts

Circus Arts students

The circus arts are an exciting hybrid of art and sport. In this course you'll dive deep into the basics of a multitude of circus disciplines, including juggling, stretching and conditioning, and aerial fabric and hammock. The circus arts have been proven to increase brain matter, develop executive function, improve physical fitness, build strength, and create community. No experience is necessary to participate, and all skills can be modified for different levels of fitness. Please wear clothing that allows you to go upside down comfortably. This class will take place at Circus Culture.
