Programs offered

CIRCUS WEEK ™ – Kids explore fitness, fun, and teamwork in a whole new way when two to three PYCA circus educators take over fitness classes at your school for 4th, 5th and 6th grades for a week and introduce juggling, balancing, and acrobatics. Additional grades can be involved depending on the facilities and the school schedule. This program works best in combination with CIRCUS FAMILY FUN NIGHT.

CIRCUS DAY — A sample of the activities of CIRCUS WEEK all done in one day.

CIRCUS FAMILY FUN NIGHT™ – an evening of fun for the entire family, sponsored by your school’s Parent-Teacher-Association/Organization. Everything is provided by PYCA. First there is popcorn, cotton candy, and circus toys for sale to benefit the PTA/PTO in a circus midway prior to the show, then a 40-minute circus show by professional and youth circus artists, followed by a 60-minute circus fair in which each part of the room is devoted to a different circus skill. Children get to show their parents what they have learned during CIRCUS WEEK while other children and the parents themselves, get to try out juggling, wire walking, and all the other fun circus activities. The evening finishes with a raffle of prizes provided by PYCA and local sponsors. It’s a great celebration for your school community and a fund-raiser for your school at the same time.

CIRCUS AFTER SCHOOL – PYCA will bring variety and excitement to your after-school program by providing circus equipment and educators for a residency of one to two weeks. PYCA also offers professional development for a staff that wants to integrate circus skills into an existing after-school program.

PRIVATE WORKSHOPS – PYCA can work almost anywhere. Circus skills make a special event that everyone can participate in. Small to large groups can be accommodated and everything is adapted to suit the available space, and the number, age, and interests of the participants.

BIRTHDAY PARTIES – Make your birthday party an exciting event. Up to 15 children get a 90 minute introduction to juggling, acrobatics, and juggling and finish with a “show-off” in which they get to perform in their own circus show. Includes souvenir clown noses for each child and souvenir juggling balls or PYCA t-shirt for the birthday child. “Thank you for making Connor’s birthday party even more enjoyable than we could have imagined! The kids were engaged the entire time – having so much fun and the adults loved seeing them practice and perform.” – K Mehin, 2023
