Youth Summer Programs

Summer programs at Esh Circus Arts offer kids and teens an opportunity to explore many aspects of the circus arts, including ground acrobatics, aerial acrobatics, tumbling, juggling, wire-walking, hula hooping and much, much more!

Each day will include an exciting mix of aerials, acrobatics and other circus skills! We keep our students safe: we maintain a 5-to-1 student-teacher ratio in all of our classes.

And at the end of each week, program participants will put on a circus show so that they can show off their new circus skills to family and friends!

Youth Circus Intensive Week

JUNE 26 – JUNE 30, 2023

AGES 8 – 16

The Intensive Week is for youth ages 8-16 who have some background in circus arts, either through classes at Esh or at another school. Participants should be excited to play hard and focus on good technique and training in a variety of circus arts!

Participants in the Intensive Week will be expected to participate safely and responsibly in all program activities. They should be able to mount and dismount a static trapeze safely on their own, climb an aerial fabric and put on a foot lock, and should be familiar with basic tumbling skills such as forward rolls and cartwheels (form does not have to be perfect).

As with all youth programs at Esh, the Intensive Week is non-competitive, and aims to help each participant explore their own potential in circus arts!

DAILY SCHEDULE

9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
