In 2017, Amazing Grace CIRCUS! is entering its 15th year as a community circus with a social purpose: to train and empower teens to perform and teach children circus arts in their communities, while building C.I.R.C.U.S. into their own lives: Confidence. Imagination. Respect. Cooperation. Understanding. Success.

Help us fund programs that make a difference in kids and teens lives. Our focus since 2015 is Circus Arts Learning through our ‘Soar to Success’ initiative.

But it takes time.

To that end, AGC! is partnering with the neediest schools in Rockland, Westchester and Bergen counties. Our first partnership lasted five years in Nyack Middle School, fully funded by a grant from Trinity Church in NYC.

Our second school partnership is in its second year with West Haverstraw Elementary School, NY, for a 10-week session meeting 3x’s a week with their entire 3rd grade class. It is partially funded by Arts Council of Rockland, a funding partner of New York State Council on the Arts. The program is AGC!’s ‘CircusGYM Extravaganza!’ We track the students abilities to improve their skills, resiliency and retention of information by teaching them how to juggle, balance on the tight-wire, spin plates and diabolos and perform equilibristic skills (balancing alone and with partners) in a Circus Show at the end of the session.

When taught by a qualified Circus Arts Educator, a skill such as three-ball juggling becomes a powerful Executive Function Aid – both sides of a child’s brain will fire off simultaneously during the practice of the skill, creating new neural pathways of information. Any skill that requires the student to cross midline with their hands and legs, stimulates the brains active learning mode. Click here to understand why ‘crossing midline’ is such a big deal in the brain’s development.

And that is why we want you to support us…so we can expand our work to improve kids/teens active learning modes, and create healthy, successful kids.

Each school raises $1,000 toward the $9,500 fee for CircusGYM Extravaganza. The balance is up to AGC! to raise from generous contributors like you. Each school is chosen by the highest % of students on free/reduced lunch in each respective school district. After consulting with the principal and PE and Art teachers, an agreement is made and the program begins.
