Time for a Grand Adventure!

Youth Company performer at work.I keep meaning to take the time to write about Seattle’s little Circus School in Georgetown. This place is a godsend; one that keeps Moon busy balancing on balls, bouncing on trampolines, walking tightropes, and going down for her nap quickly one day a week.

But this post isn’t about those classes; it’s about the Grand Adventures in Nickolai’s Toy Shoppe, coming this Saturday to the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.

Keeping pins in the airPerformers from the circus school’s Youth Company will be toys come to life as they ride unicycles, juggle, balance on balls, and perform aerial feats of acrobatics. These guys are good — we’ve had the pleasure of seeing them in practice at the school, getting ready for the big show. There’s something magical about kids getting to watch other children performing (the performers range in age from 8 – 16); it’s easier to imagine that they might be able to try that, too. It certainly keeps Moon more interested in staying in her seat.

On the ball with more in the air...You can catch the show at 2pm or 6pm, with advance tickets available online through Brown Paper Tickets. Warning, though: Once your kids see these kids in action, you may be checking out those SANCA kids classes too. Provided we’re recovered from the latest round of going-through-the-school-flu, we’ll see you there.
