Dance for Clowns
and Other Circus People

Elements of Classical, Traditional, and Modern Dance that are important for clowns, acrobats, and other circus artists.

Work on musicality, coordination, style, grace (and being gracefully ungraceful), and using your body to communicate to an audience.

"Technique is the ability to do what you want to do and to make the audience see what you want them to see."

This class complements SFSCA's Beginning Clown and Physical Comedy (Slapstick) classes, but can also be taken separately by people who are interested in comedic dance.
