AGC! is the greatest little children’s circus on earth, and our School Time Circus Shows reflect our mission and purpose.
We are a community circus with a social purpose. We serve all children regardless of race, creed or economic background. All children and teens need adult mentorship, hope and guidance. Our School Time Circus Shows and Educational Programs provide just that.
AGC! programs 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 School Time Circus Shows 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. Circus Arts has been shown to improve student academic achievement due to its combined focus on physical activity and whole brain thinking.
Since our inception in 2002, we have performed for, trained and served over 75,000 children and teens 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.
Lastly, 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.
