The Center Ring Circus School provides classes to students of all ages and abilities to improve their physical fitness, body awareness, self-esteem, focus, and discipline in a safe atmosphere of play. We offer skills training in three main disciplines: hand-eye coordination through juggling, diabolo, devil sticks, spinning plates, lassos, hoops, and poi; balance through tightrope, rolling globe, rola bola, stilts, and unicycle; and core power through fabric and static bar trapeze. We offer daily classes, monthly workshops, summer day camps, and birthday parties.
The programs began as day-camps and workshops through city and county park and recreation departments ten years ago, and the facility itself opened in December of 2012. The facility as well as several of its coaches are also members of AYCO.
For the last four summers, we have put up the Greenbelt Youth Circus: a four-week program with 40 kids, 6 Coaches, and a weekends worth of shows. last year, over a thousand people came out to see them.
