ACE Quarantine Connection Series
Posted April 28, 2020
Get ready for four weeks of circus discussion groups, presentations, and community connection! In these unprecedented times, many of us are missing not only our usual training practices, but also our circus families and communities. American Circus Educators is excited to offer a month of programming which aims to support and bring together circus educators in this current moment.

Come talk with other circus educators who are going through some of the same things you are! ACE will be hosting two discussion groups that will meet weekly. Discussions will be loosely moderated, and breakout rooms may be utilized for smaller group discussion.
