Youth circus is a magical blend of theatre, movement, physical fitness, imagination and childlike wonder. My Nose Turns Red Circus campers have an opportunity to build strong friendships as they learn some of the most entertaining tricks of the circus arts. Participants will be taught such skills as juggling, diabolo, and German Wheel, to name a few. The camp will culminate in a free public performance where students will display their newly acquired talents and abilities as friends and family watch and cheer them on. Instructors blend the ability to play with the precision of circus arts skills to create programs where youth learn teamwork and trust in a non-competitive environment. Through the art of the theatrical clown and the one-ring circus, My Nose Turns Red cultivates a supportive environment that inspires youth to challenge themselves, develop essential life skills and engage audiences.
My Nose Turns Red was founded in 1984 when co-founders Jean St. John and Steve Roenker began touring as theatrical clowns Juice and Shootang, bringing their art form to thousands of children through school performances, workshops, and residencies. In 1997, MNTR created a circus program designed to give youth the opportunity to experience the challenge of circus training with the joy of performing.
