Circus Atlantic, fresh off a wildly popular summer camp season, is offering a full semester of circus arts lessons at Merriconeag. Whether your child is keen to learn the circus basics or whether they are ready to delve deeper into their disciplines of interest, our highly accomplished coaches are ready to help students of all abilities.

The classes will be led by Master Coach Sellam el Ouahabi, touring coach of the Circus Smirkus Big Top Tour (09-13). Sellam and his assistant coaches will meet each individual at their own level, whether beginning, intermediate or advanced. Each student will have individualized attention and be coached according to their ability. Aerials, acrobatics, juggling, diablo, unicycling, pyramids and performance techniques are just some of the skills students will have the opportunity to develop.

Two classes will be offered each Monday and Wednesday afternoon beginning September 9. One class will include grades 2-5 and the other class will be for grades 5 and up. Each class will be 75 minutes in length. The semester will provide each student with over 30 hours of circus training under the direction of a world-class coach.

We anticipate continuing this program at Merriconeag with a second semester that will run from January–May 2014.
