Last week in Phys. Ed. students at ÉRB had M. Walden as a substitute teacher all week. I was in Montreal learning at École Nationale De Cirque. Over the past few months I have been a part of their online Circus Instructors course. This past week was my 1 week of practical training at the school.
I spent 8 days learning fundamentals in the areas of Hand-to-Hand, Acrobatics, Manipulation, Aerials, and Balance activities. I’m really excited to be back home now with a chance to share some of what I’ve learned.
In the 2016-17 school year our school will be part of a study that will compare circus-infused PE programs vs. those programs that teach traditional PE. Stay tuned for more info in the future.
