Teaching Artists strengthen skills while building community

Prescott Circus Theatre teaching artists meet bi-weekly to share practices, collaborate on curriculum, and support one another. On Wednesday, 3/6, the team practiced balance and juggling curriculum focusing on student collaboration and safety.  We discussed the ways physical skill building can lead to enriching student reflection sessions. Circus opens opportunities to inquire how it feels to be in balance? what do we do in our minds to balance? how can we “balance” ourselves when upsetting things happen?

We also worked on applying the principles of accurate self-assessment (“knowing what I can do and can’t do yet!”) that are needed to determine skill and emotional readiness for skill learning and performing. Circus Arts IS Education and Training for Life!

Happy Arts Education Month!
