The circus comes to Bayville Intermediate School

Fifth graders at Bayville Intermediate School spent a week learning circus acts from professional performers during their gym classes, culminating in a memorable performance on Feb. 9 in front of friends and family.

Students chose activities from balancing, juggling, walking on stilts to diablo sticks and putting on physical comedy sketches as clowns and spent the week honing that skill for the annual performance on Friday. The National Circus Project continued its partnership with the school and the Bayville Elementary Parent Council to give every student an opportunity to showcase their focus, timing and coordination, as well as their teamwork, confidence and communication skills.
