Why is circus a great addition for schools?
Non-Competitive – Instead of competing with others you’re only competing with yourself. Most physical activities have a competitive element but circus skills do not. They are creative and artistic while still being energetic.
Confidence and Self-Esteem – Being able to do impressive things improves confidence in yourself. The fact that other people will also find the skills impressive increases confidence and self-esteem even further!
Leveller – Boys aren't better than girls and sporty kids aren't better than smart ones. Everyone is equal. The people who do the best at circus skills are the ones most determined to learn. This is especially important because it can engage children who are less enthusiastic about participating in other sports.
