These resources are gathered from respected sources in the circus arts education world. The excitement of circus arts education in the classroom is that it is supported by current brain research.
But you don’t need research to tell you that this stuff works. Just try it out on your students and you will know immediately.
Here are some exercises you can do in your classroom tomorrow. The first is called Kneesy, Earsy, Nosey. As far as I know, it was created by Stan Laurel, of the famous Laurel & Hardy comedy team. But, Stan could have borrowed it from an older vaudevillian at some point.
The point to this exercise is that you can spend 4 minutes at the beginning of the curriculum day giving students a lift in their brains.
