Saskatoon School Division Circus Arts Project, Saskatchewan- Saskatoon

Saskatoon School Division Circus.jpgGoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting The Circus Arts Project,  being offered at 5 schools in Saskatoon, facing challenges in providing access to physical activity for their student community. During the Circus Arts Project, students work with professional circus artists and school staff in order to learn a wide variety of circus arts skills including juggling, Chinese yo-yo, rola bola, feather sticks, stilts, tight wire, hoops, and trampoline. Students will also learn to combine these skills with theater, performance, and clowning in order to use their skills as part of a performance. Circus skills are iåntegrated into the phys-ed program, and schools run a circus club that meets every day in order to increase physical activity time for students.

Because the program combines a focus on physical skill development, circus arts, and physical theater, the Circus Arts Project aims to engage participants who may not choose, or have access to, traditional sport or arts activities.  

This grant was made possible by the fundraising efforts of Saskatoon Circle & 8th GoodLife Fitness staff and members during the 2014 fundraising campaign.

On this final day of #NationalVolunteerWeek, we'd like to introduce you to one of our all-stars. Dr. Dick Barter is a force to be reckoned with. An emergency room physician and group fitness instructor, Dick knows the importance of physical activity in children's' lives. He is the man behind #Spin4Kids - the fundraiser started in St. John's, NL and has since inspired others event locations across the country to rally behind our cause. Under Dick's leadership over the years, the St. John's event alone has raised nearly $700,000 and is always a big party! Dick's passion has been key to bringing us to the next level... he truly is a man with a plan 🌟 #NVW2017 #VolunteeringEh? #Gratitude
