Dragonfly Aerial Arts Studio : Kids Circus

In by Marissa Highfillleave a COMMENT

Dragonfly Aerial Arts Studio in North Knoxville provides circus classes for children, helping them build self-esteem, physical agility, and social skills. Dragonfly has worked with Pond Gap Elementary School, Boys and Girls Club, Emerald Avenue Youth, and the Knox County Public Defender’s Community Law Office. (Last weekend’s Circus Extravaganza raised funds for the program.) The nonprofit performance group and school also offers summer camps in trapezes, unicycles, stilts, juggling, and more.Info at dragonflyaerialartsstudio.com.
