Cirque Amongus - Discover the Big Top Within

Circus Day at School Project Outline

4. Afternoon

After lunch each student selects one of the ten skills to perform in the show. The students' name tags get scanned and we produce a program for the show with pictures taken during the day, listing the acts and the students in them.

Kindergarten Students

Kindergarten students become actors in animal acts. After lunch they return to their classrooms, get some rest, and rehearse their acts.

Building Acts

The students spend the next 90 minutes rehearsing and writing a 3 minute act for the big show in groups of about 12 supervised by a station boss.
The acts are built with student input and cooperation.

Wardrobe & Makeup

During this time the students also get dressed and made up for the performance, assisted by the group leaders.
