Our social circus hero!
At Cirkidz we use a the Circus Hand analogy to explain all of the great reasons to do circus. The Circus Hand was created by Reg Bolton who was a circus performer and clown who travelled the world teaching circus to young people. His work was the foundation of social circus, where circus skills and performance are used to build confidence and interpersonal relationships for kids in difficult social or economic situations. Once he settled here in Australia, he wrote his doctoral thesis on the subject, including the analogy of the Circus Hand to present the six main aspects of why circus works.
