Cirque Kids (8-11 years)
This class is taught by:
Katy has been doing aerials off and on for about five years, training mainly on static trapeze with Kingston Circus Arts and the Circus Academy in Toronto. She began aerial hoop with Brass Butterflies in June and is trained in teaching Lyra by CPFA, currently working toward her certification.
Does your child climb anything and everything in sight? Why not sign them up for the circus themed classes? Aerial arts are a great way for kids to build strength, coordination, and confidence. During an 8 week session, children will have the opportunity to experience multiple apparatuses, including aerial hammock, silks, hoop and static/dance trapeze, learning basic technique and skills on each. Each class starts with playing fun, active, circus themed games, warming up the body. The children will also learn to stretch safely to maintain or increase flexibility and prevent injury. Class sizes are small (a maximum of 6 students per instructor), and children will progress at their own speed and comfort level.
