The youth circus programme at the European Juggling Convention 2014 provides a space allowing the youth of the juggling community to come together within an area just for them.
We encourage networking with other youth circus followers from around Europe and the world. It is a great opportunity to meet like-minded friends from different countries and nationalities with a common interest in circus arts and culture. We provide a wade-ranging program of activities that explores some of the basic principles in circus and we also encourage skill sharing within the group through specific sessions.
There are performance opportunities available and there are also tuition opportunities from the many facilitators we have arranged, who work in circus performance and education.
Come along to our Youth Circus Areas and enjoy the great youth circus programme at EJC 2014.
