There’s a school for that

September 29, 2011 – Today I discovered something else unique about Philadelphia.

It’s home to the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts.

I’ve always heard jokes about Clown College, but I never thought there was an actual place where you can learn the secrets that only circus performers know.

The school opened in June 2008, and there’s nary a clown to be found. It’s the only contemporary circus school in the region offering adult and children’s classes, along with private lessons in juggling, tight wire, trapeze, unicycling, tumbling, Chinese acrobats and physical conditioning.

The buzz on the streets is that the facility is also a popular solution to kids’ parties, special events and corporate team building exercises. Talk about getting employees to think outside the box. Can you imagine you doing a trapeze catch with your boss?

So whether you have a secret desire to run away and join the circus or you are simply looking for a new way to exercise, the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts may be the way to go.

    appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
