For Circus When School’s Out: Brooklyn Beanstalk

Brooklyn Beanstalk offers school break and summer camps dedicated to the circus arts. Skills such as balancing on a ball, juggling, walking on stilts, performing pratfalls and forming a human pyramid teach teambuilding, balance, coordination and more.
