Join us for a LGBTQ2S+ focused, beginner-friendly circus workshop as a part of our Move with Pride event series!

 

About the Instructor: Jayeden Walker (she/her) is a queer neurodivergent circus artist and coach. As an artist, she creates contemporary circus works, exploring gender, disability, and queerness with a focus on celebrating joy and imagining a more liberated future. As a circus coach, Jayeden aims to create inclusive, trauma-informed movement spaces that are disability informed and center the needs of Queer and Trans folks. She is the founder of Rainbow Circus, a social circus initiative that works with Queer and Trans youth. 
 
About the Workshop: Suitable for those with no or some circus experience this workshop will explore ground-based circus disciplines and expressive movement using props like juggling balls, spinning plates, hula hoops, and more! With inclusivity at the forefront, this workshop aims to show that circus is for every body and human who wants to try it, with a specific focus on creating a disability-informed, body celebratory, space that supports LGBTQ2S+ folks. 

 

This workshop will run for 1.5 hours, with an additional half hour at the end for questions and socialization.
