Students are encouraged to enroll in all sessions to get the most out of learning circus skills. Public Winter and Spring Cirkus performances by Cirkus After School participants will be presented free to the community, at the Hudson Youth Center.
Bindlestiff’s Cirkus After School uses skills like juggling, stilt walking, tumbling, partner acrobatics, prop manipulation and physical comedy to help youth to become stronger learners, community members, and leaders by encouraging them to express themselves creatively, challenge themselves physically, and work inventively with others.
