The Arts Center on the Hudson is a proud supporter of "Cirque Kids", a
community circus, where each year up to a hundred children are treated to
learning circus skills such as plate spinning, scarf juggling, rolla bola,
balancing, acrobatics and even tight-wire walking.
Led by the faculty of the neighboring Spacial Dynamics Institute, and with
the support of volunteer students of the institute, there are yearly circus
performances which are presented to the proud parents, grandparents and
friends of the joyous children.
The Arts Center Foundation has provided free "Cirque Kids" t-shirts for all the
children and staff of the Mechanicville Area Community Center who have
participated in Cirque Kids.
