Performance or circus residency? Performance: Both elementary and middle school versions of this fast-paced, circus-themed performance (One Woman Circus and Student Stars) receive rave reviews. Featuring Sand as a hapless circus artiste in need of a troupe, numerous students are enlisted to create a surprising variety of circus routines. It is engaging, entertaining and exceptionally well-constructed to appeal to all ages. Warning: causes excessive laughter making some students and teachers cry. Residencies: Sand offers K-12, curriculum relevant circus workshops that demonstrate growth mindset in action. Sand returns to schools (up to 14 years in a row) for good reason: Students love the physical challenges and enjoy concrete results. Teachers love the emphasis on mindfulness, personal effort, self-regulation and incremental learning through focused practice. Workshops and residencies are shaped to fit your learning objectives and students' needs. Contact Sand directly at [email protected] to customize your circus project.
