Slappy, Monday and their professional artistic colleagues use the power of humor and performance to reach and teach not only students from pre-kindergarten through 5th grade, but also kids with special needs and chronic illnesses.
In the school setting, utilizing circus arts and physical comedy, the foundation brings two critical subjects to life with unique, engaging, funny and educational shows. In addition to providing a psychological benefit, this learning style encourages students to participate and leads them to embrace the link between math, science, reading and their everyday world.
In the camp setting, we pair these same concepts with special needs kids and kids with chronic illnesses to empower them and uplift their spirit through physical comedy and circus skills.
Research shows what parents and teachers have always known — that laughter helps kids learn, especially when it’s carefully layered with course material.
