The Art of Juggling


Today, students had the privilege of meeting and working with two talented circus entertainers from the group, Cirque Mechanics. Here’s a clip about the group from the U.C.S.B. Arts and Lectures web site:

Don’t miss the massive, mysterious apparatus called the Gantry Bike as it travels around the stage like a modern caravan.

Here’s the entire group in action: 

Here is a sample of what the children enjoyed today!
