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 Shows and Educational Programs provide just that.
AGC! programs are designed to address the 6 key life learning values for children:
Confidence. Imagination. Respect. Courage. Understanding. Success. (c.i.r.c.u.s.)
We teach these values using repetitive, progressively learned skills like juggling, equilibristics, balancing, 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 Learning improves 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 80,000 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 programs the best source is NY State BOCES (Board of Cooperative Education Services).
