Tsunami Juniors

Tsunami Juniors is a circus performance troupe for kids aged 7-11.  Youth who have participated in Salt Spring Circus and Gymnastics programs are eligible to apply.
The Tsunami Juniors program will be focused on fun, team-building, skill-building, and preparation for the final performance.  Activities will include ground-based skills such as juggling, flagging, poi and other props, acro, hoop and clowning.  Aerial apparatus such as hammocks, silks, lyra and trapeze will be used in this program, however they are not the primary focus.   Students will work on a variety of circus and performance skills, including choreographing, rhythm and tempo, story telling through the apparatus and connecting with the audience.  They will learn to use circus apparatus/gear as tools to further their performance skills in preparation for the show.
Tsunami Juniors will train for the winter term (January-April) and will contribute a piece to the annual Tsunami Circus show in May.
