The Circus Themed Day in our Fun Space Program is hugely popular and it's not surprising why. Not only do children get to have fun learning skills such as juggling, plate spinning, hula hooping, balancing tricks, poi and more with one of our professional circus performers, but they actually reap many cognitive benefits too!
Studies have shown that learning to juggle increases the grey matter of the brain, that is, your brain actually grows as you learn this new skill. As you juggle, your hands are often crossing your midline which also helps to link both the left and right hemispheres of the brain together and with this increased connectivity, children can sharpen their focus and improve concentration .
Learning to juggle has many other physical, educational, social and psychological benefits too such as keeping kids fit and active, improving hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, improving self-confidence, enhancing communication and problem solving skills, and encouraging kids to have patience and persistence all while fostering their imagination and creativity.
