A summer day camp for young people aged 9-15, The Actors Gymnasium Circus and Performing Arts Camp is perfect for young performers who want to strengthen, stretch and flex their creative muscles. Each day begins with a warm-up, followed by training and workshops in circus, drama, and movement. Students learn circus skills: juggling, tumbling, trapeze, tightwire, stilts, and more; take fun-filled field trips; and create and perform their very own circus-theatre performance at the end of the session! Camp is directed by Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi.
