Summary

Costa Rica Circus Arts Programs

Share your dance, theatre, and/or circus expertise by volunteering with a circus arts group that helps empower a community in Costa Rica’s Southern Zone. 

Specializing in areas such as acrobatics, mime, dance, juggling, and balancing, this group works with at-risk teenagers and foreign volunteers. As you contribute your own skills, you will give the group a great resource and a new energy. You will also develop your craft under their expert guidance and gain an exceptional understanding of Costa Rican performing arts and culture. Volunteer placement requires at least ten hours a week for a minimum of one week.

 

With various program lengths, choose to enroll in the Circus Arts Program with a focus in either Dance or Theatre.

This project was created to assist youth in low-income areas. New awareness and spaces for artistic expression are being created in Costa Rica for children in vulnerable conditions, which present great opportunities for volunteering and internships. You will work with approximately 20 teenagers teaching skills such as acrobatics, juggling, dance, and mime with local and other foreign volunteers. Every hour that these teens spend learning circus arts is an hour they are involved in a positive, structured activity that gives them self-esteem and empowers them.

 

“As an Arts Educator, the Circus Arts program in Costa Rica provided me with a great professional development opportunity. I was given the once-in-a-lifetime chance to infuse my art with teaching and learning experiences in a beautiful new setting, at once exciting and challenging. My understanding of arts education has been broadened by my amazing experiences in Costa Rica, and will undoubtedly inform my future arts projects and teaching practice in many ways.”
