MyKingstonKids In association Bindlestiff Family Cirkus presents Bindlestiff’s Cirkus After School Spring Intensive Program at the YMCA every Friday starting April 1st. The idea of this program was to provide an opportunity of excitement, skill building and fun to young people in Kingston from ages 7 – 14. The Classes includes circle time for a check-in, a discussion of one of our Values or a positive character attribute, a warm-up, guided skill exploration and development, games, and a closing circle centered on self-reflection and self-assessment. Cirkus After School instructors are a diverse group of professionals who bring training in youth development, circus skills, restorative Circle-keeping, and social-emotional learning into our approach.

Youth will collaborate to create a public performance at the MyKingstonKids Fest: “Welcome To The Circus “, 5 year anniversary event, on Saturday May 21, 2022 in a park in Kingston.

This well-structured, highly focused, professionally lead program will make it possible for children to participate in a variety of activities including: Juggling with balls, clubs, rings, scarves, and odd objects, Diabolo, Stilts, Unicycle, Clowning and Physical Comedy

This is an 8 week long program. 1.5 hours per class. Equipment and snack will be provided on location.
