OPENAIR is a non-profit based in Somerville that teaches circus arts to children (and some adults) in an effort to promote leadership, self-esteem and an appreciate for arts and community. We keep our prices low so that children and families of any background can join in the fun ($20/child or $30/family for the 6 week program, see www.openaircircus.org for more details).
Classes meet for 1 hour per week during Tuesday through Thursday, 4:30-7:30 and will begin June 26 and run through July 26. Online registration is targeted to open on June 17th. We also have in-person registration available. Our rehearsals will be July 31-August 2 and the students will get to show off what they learned on August 3rd at 7pm, August 4th at 2pm and 7pm, and August 5th at 2pm.
Before classes start, join us for our annual pancake breakfast on June 23rd from 9:30-11am at First Church Somerville UCC (89 College Ave, Somerville, MA). This is a great opportunity for newcomers to the OPENAIR Circus to meet others in the community and learn about the program and what to expect. It’s also a great opportunity for those who have taken part in the program in the past to reconnect while eating delicious food made by one of our board members. We’ll be serving pancakes, eggs, sausage, veggie patties, coffee and O.J. Tickets at the door will be $10/teen or adult (11 years old or older); $5/child (10 years old or younger); $25/family.
