We were so fortunate to work with the talented Calliegh Lim, a VIU film student who was interested in producing a short piece on Vesta's new educational programming. We love it! What do you think?
We had an amazing time as ‘Artist in Residence’ at Coal Tyee Elementary school this fall! We facilitated grade 2, 3 and 4 kids for 10 weeks, teaching poi and hoop skills. The children worked hard to choreograph and produce a finale circus show for the whole school, parents and teachers. It was an incredible experience for everyone- we are so proud of all the kid’s hard work and dedication. We LOVE using circus to foster perseverance, teamwork, and self esteem!
And the BEST news is that Vesta is able to be funded to come into YOUR school too! Check out the BC Arts Council funds ArtStarts Artist in the Classroom grant program. We partner with teachers to collaboratively develop a program to integrate circus arts into curricula. We serve Vancouver Island and the outlying islands- lower mainland as well!
Contact us! – we’d love to talk to parents, PAC members and Teachers about how to easily bring the joy to your school!!
