Run away with the circus with this summer camp!
posted by: Guest Blogger
Your child will have a magical summer learning how to walk the tightrope, soar on the trapeze or silks, practice their new acrobatic skills on the trampoline, climb the Chinese pole, throw a pie in a clown’s face, and even juggle the clown noses! All the while getting to know their new best friends.
MOTH Contemporary Circus Center is located in the RiNo Arts District in downtown Denver. MOTH is a collaborative environment where children of all ages can develop circus skills in a safe and supportive environment. MOTH or Movement Of The Heart, is a home that helps foster creativity and welcomes everyone through our doors.
MOTH CCC adheres to a strict set of safety procedures to ensure campers stay healthy and follow proper progressions to avoid injury.
At MOTH we have the same philosophy for our summer campers as our adults in our professional training program.
LEARN: “THE JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES BEGINS WITH A SINGLE STEP.” LAO TZU
Learning is the place to begin with any performing arts program. Whether you are an inspired beginner or seasoned professional, learning is the first step toward your development as an athlete, artist, and human being.
TRAIN: “WE ARE WHAT WE REPEATEDLY DO. EXCELLENCE, THEN, IS NOT AN ACT BUT A HABIT.” ARISTOTLE
Training is the next step in your development as a circus performer. This is the time to take what you have learned, work hard, have fun, and become part of a community. Having the discipline to train on a daily or weekly basis will enable you to become your best and get the most from our Denver circus school programs.
CREATE: “IMAGINATION IS THE BEGINNING OF CREATION. YOU IMAGINE WHAT YOU DESIRE, YOU WILL WHAT YOU IMAGINE AND AT LAST YOU CREATE WHAT YOU WILL.” GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
Creation is the time to rely on your inspiration and intuition. By training hard you will have the confidence to focus your skills and technique, and turn your attention to creating something that reflects your individuality. Expression is an essential component of becoming an artist, and an important element to your comprehensive circus training.
PERFORM: “ONLY FROM THE HEART, CAN WE TOUCH THE SKY.” RUMI
Performance is your ultimate expression of self. It is the culmination of everything you have accomplished, and is truly a movement of the heart! Through your circus and acrobatic performances, you will see all of your hard work, studies, training, and creativity come to full fruition, and you’ll never want to stop.
Our campers truly run away with the circus. MOTH will become their home both athletically and artistically; the circus has something for everyone.
Our fun-filled camps conclude with face-painting and our campers perform on the last day of camp in their very own big show!
