Since 2001, The Prescott Circus Theatre has been providing Circus Arts programs beyond our home base at Prescott Elementary in West Oakland. Last school year, distanced learning programs looked pretty different. We continued to engage through dynamic online circus and theater arts programs in partnership with seven public schools. Our curriculum emphasized student connectivity and self expression through circus skill building, stage presence, story development, and performance production. Below is a list of our current 2021-2022 programs. To read, see, and hear last year’s students’ reflections and creations, CLICK HERE
