Somerville’s OPENAIR Circus will offer its 39th year of summer classes in circus skills beginning June 27, running through August 7. This year in-person classes will be at Lou Ann David Park on Broadway near Teele Square, in 55 minute time slots Tuesday through Thursday from 4:30-7:30.
In-person classes will include:
Baton twirling (beginner and intermediate)
Devil sticks (beginner and intermediate)
Hula hoops (beginner and intermediate)
Juggling (beginner and intermediate)
Stilting (beginner, intermediate, and advance)
Tumbling for Two (age 3-7 with adult partner)
Diabolo, poi, and sphereplay will be offered remotely
Beginner students in stilting and unicycling must bring their own spotters.
Equipment for all classes is available for loan or purchase.
All classes are free, though donations are requested to help pay our teachers.
Due to COVID concerns, in-person classes have limited enrollment, and there will not be a final Big Top performance this year. All students, teachers, and organizers will be masked and socially distanced.
