Circus Harmony Ages 5 to 18 | females and males | Mon

Circus Harmony is a non-profit social circus organization that uses circus arts to motivate social change. By inspiring individuals and connecting communities with circus education and entertainment programs, they have a positive impact on the St. Louis area and beyond. Their programs teach valuable life skills like perseverance, focus, and teamwork. Learning circus with others teaches trust, responsibility and cooperation. Perhaps the most important experience they give participants the opportunity to meet and interact with children from different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds than their own. They believe the path to peace is a path of cooperation and communication. Teaching children from different neighborhoods how to stand on each other?s shoulders may seem like a strange way to take this path. But it?s the technique we use! Circus Harmony promotes peace through pyramids, joy through juggling and harmony through handsprings. To learn more about this organization, visit their website at... https://circusharmony.org/
