The big tent is coming to Saskatoon in a small way, as public school students prepare to showcase their circus talents.
Students between the ages of nine and 14 attended a week-long circus performance camp at North Park Wilson School this week. They perform there for the public today at 2:15 p.m. This is the third year the school has hosted a circus camp, and the seventh consecutive year the school division has run the program.
“It’s physical activity and artistic expression combined into one. But it’s also not competitive, so students who might not do traditional drama or sports will be engaged in this as well, because it’s something really unique,” said Michael Bradford, vice-principal of College Park School.
Participation for all the kids involved was free of charge, thanks to sponsorship from Canadian Tire Jumpstart and support from the Saskatchewan Arts Board and Dakota Dunes Community Development Corporation.
