THURSDAY LUNCHEON SPEAKER

Thursday, December 21st, 2017 - 12:10pm to 1:30pm

From David, we will learn about Prescott Circus Theater, where each year, over 170 children work with professional artists to develop physical circus skills such as juggling, acrobatics, improvisation, balancing, unicycling, stilting, hip hop dance, hambone body percussion, and clowning. An emphasis on cultural connections within the program’s curriculum and structure is valued and included. Students also learn about performance art, including creative expression, stage presence, production, and theatre vocabulary.

Through this work, participants increase their confidence while developing essential life skills including teamwork, cooperation, punctuality, and grace under pressure — the ability to smile when “the show must go on!”. This is arts education that truly promotes school and life success.From David, we will learn about Prescott Circus Theater, where each year, over 170 children work with professional artists to develop physical circus skills such as juggling, acrobatics, improvisation, balancing, unicycling, stilting, hip hop dance, hambone body percussion, and clowning.
