Carny Class is a mix of the different skill classes we have here at The Last Carnival. This is a great class because it will give your child a bit of everything circus.
Carny Class brings together skills from our adult classes and workshops tailor fit for the learning of young minds and bodies to give your young circus enthusiast ground and aerial skills training in a fun yet focused environment. Each week we will start with group warm up activities. Carny Class will focus on aerial skills on the static trapeze, lyra (aerial hoop), hammock, and aerial silks. The ground based circus arts will include flexibility, partner acrobatic skills, ground acrobtics, as well as an array of different circus props to help focus on balance, coordination, and object manipulation.To do this we will use the rolla bolla, juggling props (hoops, rings, diabolos, scarves, flower sticks), feathers, twirling ribbons, hula hoops, and spinning plates to name a few! Safety is a top priority for us, the instructor will be spotting students and all aerial activities start just a few feet off the ground with crash mats and gymnastics flooring below. In level 3 class will now also offer production elements of circus arts as well. To help kids create their own circus productions! To do this kids will learn about face paintning and stage make up, set design, what goes into a stage costume, and safe rigging set up.
There will be room for 6 in each class, so make sure to get your child signed up early to reserve their spot. Classes will now be divided into age groups so each child can get the best training with other kids their own age . Instructed by Sihka. Sign up on through The Last Carnival calendar page.
