Circus Smirkus Residencies…Re-imagined!

Looking for engaging arts enrichment and physical education programming during this unusual school year? Circus Smirkus can help! We provide interactive online learning for all ages—during the day or after school—whether your school is operating in-person, virtually, or in a hybrid model. 

 

Our residencies include all of the equipment and circus arts instruction needed for a fun and unique experience that easily integrates with and supports your curriculum. In these programs, students learn circus skills like juggling, clowning, and plate spinning, while building life skills such as confidence, persistence, creativity, and resilience. 

 

How does it work? Our program is flexible — we will partner with you to craft the best residency experience for your school. Here are some options: 

 

  • Try a one-day online classroom residency to add some variety to your classroom routine. Our professional residency artists can schedule several classroom visits during a week to give each student a chance to try circus.
  • Get moving in our online physical education alternative. In this program, students are active and moving while working on balance, coordination, and more.
  • Our popular in-school residencies are great for schools that are back to face-to-face learning—our classic residency program is perfect for many Vermont schools!

Let’s talk about how a Circus Smirkus residency can be customized to meet your school’s needs… we’d love to work with you. Contact us: josh.shack@smirkus.org or 802-533-2423 x33.
