Halifax Circus offers an hour long introduction to juggling and circus skills on Saturday mornings. Students will learn object manipulation (juggling clubs, scarves, balls, diablos and devil sticks) and balance (unicycle, tight rope, rolabola). Everyone works at their own pace with attention given to strengths and interests. This class runs 8 weeks starting on January 14 and costs $135. Ages 5-7 at 10am and the 8-10 year olds are in at 11am.

He'll run you through your paces to keep yourself safe and healthy while practicing handstands and working on your core strength. 8 weeks, 8 hours, $135, clear results. Take your circus to a new level.
