Winter can be a long season in Calgary, so make it exciting with Green Fools Theatre circus programs! We know that work and school can slide into drudgery if we’re not careful and sometimes you need to add a little amazement to your season. This winter, introduce your kids to fascinating activities where they will be physically challenged, creatively nurtured, and have loads of fun!
Green Fools Theatre offers a number of interesting circus programs to help your aspiring performers and acrobats leap whole-heartedly into life. These programs are for all kids with an interest in the circus — no matter the skill level. Even if your kids have never tried the circus arts before or imagined what might be possible, they can achieve great things at Green Fools and find the opportunity to succeed.
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 each achievement. Due to the limited class sizes, 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. Sounds like the perfect way to stay warm!
