Summer is filled with fun experiences and great family time, but fall can bring exciting and rewarding new things, too. Maybe this is the year your kids try something totally unique, like the Green Fools Theatre programs! Have your kids ever wanted to run away and join the circus? Maybe they’ve picked up some tennis balls and tried to juggle or watched an aerialist in awe. This fall, introduce your kids to some amazing activities where they will be physically challenged, creatively nurtured, and have loads of fun!
Green Fools Theatre offers amazing circus programs to help aspiring performers and acrobats leap wholeheartedly into life, adding something special to the daily schedule. These programs are for all kids with an interest in the circus — even those who doubt what they can achieve! With circus skills from basic juggling and balancing to tightwire and aerial, kids will learn new skills in a safe and supportive environment. They will challenge themselves, burn their energy, and build confidence as they master new achievements.
Even if your child has never tried the circus arts before, they’ll find the opportunity to succeed. Students will receive plenty of one-on-one coaching in the specific areas they are most passionate about. With a focus on fun and growth, Green Fools Theatre is ideal for any youth who has expressed an interest in physical theatre.
From September to December 2023, Green Fools Theatre is offering a variety of classes. Children from ages 6 to 17 years old can run away to the circus. Check out this sampling of amazing programs. Which one will your child choose?! (And parents, there are even a couple of classes for adults!)
4-Week Circus Sampler (Ages 6 – 8 & 9 – 12 years)
With a small commitment and BIG fun, the Green Fools 4–week circus Sampler class gives your kiddos the opportunity to try out the circus program offerings to see what they love the best. They get to try it all: aerial trapeze, hoop, and fabric, balance skills like rolabola, tightwire, stilts, and unicycle, and manipulation skills like juggling, poi, and plate spinning. If they love it, Green Fools can recommend the best class to continue on. If they don’t, they can check it off their bucket list, “I once was in the circus!”
Aerial, Acro, & Circus Kids (Ages 6 – 8 years)
This class is for your budding Circus Star! With an introduction to all the things the circus has to offer, this action-packed class teaches your kiddo balance skills, prop manipulation skills, and ground and aerial acrobatics. There is something for every kid in this class!
Props Manipulations (Ages 9 – 17 years)
Green Fools is not just all about acrobatics! Has your kiddo ever wanted to learn to juggle, do hat tricks, swing poi, spin plates, hula-hoop, jump rope, or …. the options are endless! There is an entire world of Props Manipulation to explore, and this is the class to do just that. This 60-minute class, once a week, gives students the time and place to practice their skills without you having to worry about the safety of your china cabinet!
Balance (Ages 9 – 17 years)
Does your child love to defy gravity? Balancing on the back of the sofa, standing on the smallest part of the furniture, popping wheelies and riding their bike with no hands? Green Fools has just the place for them to come and hone their balancing skills and learn what it means to defy gravity, with tightwires, unicycles, stilts, walking balls, and more. This 60-minute class, once a week, gives students the opportunity to explore their balance and grow their skills in a safe and coached environment.
Mixed Aerial Foundations (Ages 9 – 12 & 13 – 17 years)
This aerial skills class is designed for new students to aerial training. They focus on safe foundations and progressions in trapeze, hoop, and silks. Green Fools believes that setting strong foundations when students begin their aerial journey sets them up for success in this class and any other aerial training they pursue in the future.
Are your kids ready to move to the next level? Be sure to check out more advanced Green Fools classes in Silks, Hoops, and Trapeze! Plus, stay tuned for future classes, when Green Fools will be offering technique and performance classes. Students will have the option to choose between these two classes or take BOTH!
Make this school year about trying new things and embracing the opportunities that come. Registration is now open for the fall Green Fools Theatre Programs.
Let’s achieve something amazing!
