Monday, August 7 – Saturday, August 12 / Hudson NY/ Bindlestiff’s annual Summer Cirkus
Since 2009, Bindlestiff’s Cirkus After School has partnered with Operation Unite New York and the City of Hudson Department of Youth to offer Summer Cirkus, a week-long circus training opportunity free for youth ages 8-19.
Residents of the Hudson City School District get free enrollment for an early session (Ages 8-12) focusing on juggling, tumbling, aerial arts, wire walking, and a variety of prop manipulation skills); an afternoon Stilt-Walking session is offered for teens ages 13 and up. All participants will perform for the Black Arts and Cultural Festival Family Day Parade and celebration at Henry Hudson Waterfront Park on August 12.
Joining us this year as a guest coach is Paris, the Hip Hop Juggler http://www.hiphopjuggler.com who grew up participating in youth circus and has been a highly-esteemed coach for beginners and world-class jugglers alike. Bindlestiff’s teen junior counselors also help out all week as part of Cirkus After School’s job-training initiative.
