Bindlestiff’s Cirkus After School 
at Chatham’s Morris Memorial
21 Park Row
3-4pm ages 7-9
4-5pm ages 10 and up
Wednesdays, March 1 – April 26
(no class April 19)
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. Our projected outcomes are aligned with Social Circus theory, as recognized by the American Youth Circus Organization, which proposes application of instructional and cooperative techniques from the world of circus arts to help accelerate desired outcomes in youth development, therapeutic or community development settings.

A public performance by Cirkus After School participants will be presented on Wednesday, April 26th,  free to the community, at the Morris Memorial.
Participation is free for Morris Memorial participants, but registration is required: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1vdpQPBR3iCa-h26h7n2RPZI2Lb8v8VPwe9UPPL3lTkA/edit
Also, all are invited to join jugglers of all ages at Hudson Juggling Club, held on Mondays from 6-8 pm at the MC Smith Intermediate School gymnasium. It’s free, it’s fun, and provides access to juggling equipment, unicycles, and mentorship from Bindlestiff co-founder Stephanie Monseu.
