Moving on up: an introductory course to stilts — Saturday, Dec. 5, 1pm
In this class you will learn the first couple of basics to circus stilts such as falling and walking. This class is perfect for anyone interested in getting into stilts, those wishing to better their balance or wanting to push themselves outside of their comfort zone. It is recommended you bring your own protective gear for your own comfort reasons; however knee pads will be provided for those who do not bring their own. So, come hit that growth spurt you’ve always wanted so you too can be the tallest person around.
