Caliber Beta Academy, Circus Modern + School Principal
Circus Modern entertains thousands of children
at School Assemblies
Indoors or outdoors, a circus theme inspires children, provides wonder, and excellent role models for health, exercise, and dedication to the arts and athleticism.
Circus arts also provide a platform for building strength and confidence with accessible and fun props and movement arts. Playshops after the assembly performance are ideal for up-close interactions with the artists and children.
To assist educators with choosing a curriculum for the assembly,
here are two examples of programming.
