It’s been a long time in the planning. We’ve put a lot of consideration into how to bring activities safely for kids ages 9-14. Finally it’ here. Flynn Creek Circus’ brings covid safe children’s activities to the Coast this Halloween.
Early registration advised. Extremely limited enrollment!
Safe, fun, physical activity! Kids will have room to play and learn in the colorful big top with the guidance of the professional circus staff. This limited enrollment workshop will work train students in aerial arts, slack-line and acrobatics while maintaining comprehensive covid safety.
Beginning to advanced level students are welcome. Students will receive more in-depth instruction in our limited enrollment format and create an end of workshop recital performance to show off what they’ve learned. The recital performance is free admission but REQUIRES SEAT RESERVATION DUE TO COUNTY GATHERING LIMITATIONS!
PLEASE NOTE: Full refunds will be automatically issued in the event of cancelation due public health order.
