AGC! is the greatest little children’s circus on earth (or at least in the Hudson Valley/NY Tri-state area).
We are a community/social circus. We provide a cross-cultural experience for children and teens at all stages of their development, and from all walks of life. We work with children and teens at-risk in their homes, their schools, their lives. We consider all teens at-risk, some more than others. Circus is for everyone.
AGC! programs are fully cooperative and non-competitive. They are designed to address the 6 key life learning values that help children of all ages become better people: Confidence. Imagination. Respect. Cooperation. Understanding. Success. (c.i.r.c.u.s.)
Our programs are unique in the field of arts education. Through the teaching of repetitive, progressively learned skills like juggling, equilibristics, acrobatics, aerial arts, ‘Circus Arts Learning’ has become the subject of graduate degrees, Ph.D theses, and bona fide research projects across the world. It is believed that Circus Arts can improve student academic achievement due to its combined focus on physical activity and whole brain thinking.
We perform and serve over 3,000 children every year with our core programs. School Principals, PTA/Cultural Arts Directors and Teachers often ask us if we have resources to help them pay our fees. For our in-school, educationally-focused programs the best source is NY State BOCES (Board of Cooperative Education Services). CLICK HERE for more information on this wonderful program. In many cases, up to 100% of our fees are reimbursable to your school through their Arts in Education program.
For our out-of-school events and enrichment programs, call ‘Mr. Amazing’ (aka, Carlo Pellegrini, co-founder of AGC!). He will walk you through our Event Funding Strategy and show you how to make money for your school, community center, church, synagogue, non-profit or for-profit organization with our programs. Besides his circus background, he is a consultant to Fortune 500 companies and a business coach for professionals in a broad range of industries and services.
