Since 2001, The Prescott Circus Theatre has been providing Circus Arts programs beyond our home base at Prescott Elementary in West Oakland. While our programs look pretty different now due to health and safety measures, we are keeping our students empowered and engaged through dynamic online circus and theater arts programs in partnership with seven public schools. Our curriculum continues to emphasize student connectivity and self expression through circus skill building, stage presence, story development, and performance production. To get a sense of what online circus looks like, check out our video highlights from our 2020 Summer program. Click here to watch the video.
