The One-Man Circus-in-a-Suitcase delights and inspires assembly audiences to practice compassion and follow their dreams. An entire cast of circus performers emerge from a small suitcase but the most important characters come from the audience, as chosen members become part of the action. Each show is a dialogue between the audience and the characters, a lighthearted col­laboration that allows the entire school to run away and join the circus and still be back in time for lunch. The show comes with a curriculum guide for teachers to integrate the circus back into the classroom.

How’s your school spirit this year? Could you use a fun and inclusive celebration? What about an interactive teacher/parent/ kid joy of juggling lesson? Circus Minimus has edited a professionally shot video from a stellar One-Man Circus in-a-Suitcase performance available to your school for up to one week.
As a BONUS they are including a juggling workshop for teachers, parents and kids to learn juggling by reusing plastic bags (or as they refer to it in the biz—Baggling!).
Juggling has been proven scientifically to: 
* Improve coordination and reflexes
* Enhance visual tracking skills for reading and sequencing skills for math
* Enable shy kids to become more outgoing and interactive
* Requires and reinforces persistence and concentration
* Improve balance and rhythm in gross and fine motor skills
* Can lead to stage presence and more self-confidence
* Improve handwriting and manual dexterity
* Increase patience and focus 
* Increase higher order problem solving and imagination
* Channel physical energy thus avoiding frustration and behavioral issues
* Help kids get better at goal setting
* Improve the chances of setting, getting, and achieving internal rewards for achievement and pride
This professionally shot and edited video and juggling workshop costs $250 and runs about 40 minutes. If you like you we can add a personal ZOOM call to your classroom for $100. In that Zoom session students and I can experience the core principles of circus: Inclusion and Celebration and or they can improve their juggling skills. Suggested Audience: Grades K-6.
