Between school and work, kids and errands, we know that family life can be a circus! We say just embrace it, jump in with two feet, and make the most of every season. Introduce your kids to some amazing activities where they will be physically challenged, creatively nurtured, and have loads of fun!

Green Fools Theatre is offering amazing circus programs to help your aspiring performers and acrobats leap whole-heartedly into life – no matter what else is going on! These programs are for all kids with an interest in the circus — even those who have never imagined what they could 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. Due to the limited class size, 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.

In November and December of 2021, Green Fools Theatre is offering a variety of classes, from toddlers, with Parent and Tot classes, up to 17 years old. They even offer some classes in French! Which one will your child choose?!
