We want to spread method of circus pedagogy in the Balkan area as we think it is a great method which teaches participants how to cooperate, trust each other, be creative and improves their self esteem. It is an inclusive method, which works well with different target groups.

The main idea of circus pedagogy is that circus is accessible to everybody regardless of their age, physical condition, social background, gender… It is appealing and fun for everybody, making it ideal as a tool for educational work with youngsters. The aim is to introduce youngsters to positive, healthy activities, encourage co-operation, and strengthen their confidence, while developing co-ordination and persistence. By practicing this activity, children and teenager develop physical skills, social skills and personal skills.
