Vesta in the Schools!

We had an amazing time as ‘Artist in Residence’ at Coal Tyee Elementary school this fall! We facilitated grade 2, 3 and 4 kids for 10 weeks, teaching poi and hoop skills. The children worked hard to choreograph and produce a finale circus show for the whole school, parents and teachers. It was an incredible experience for everyone- we are so proud of all the kid’s hard work and dedication.  We LOVE using circus to foster perseverance, teamwork, and self esteem!

And the BEST news is that Vesta is able to be funded to come into YOUR school too! Check out the BC Arts Council funds ArtStarts Artist in the Classroom grant program. We partner with teachers to collaboratively develop a program to integrate circus arts into curricula. We serve Vancouver Island and the outlying islands- lower mainland as well!

Contact us – we’d love to talk to parents, PAC members and Teachers about how to easily bring the joy to your school!!

This is the annual Halloween fundraising show for Vesta, Nanaimo’s contemporary circus and fire performance troupe. Funds raised assist with the rental of our winter practice studio.

Vesta is internationally acclaimed, performing internationally with tours of both Asia and the USA. Their spectacular fire shows have been the highlight of many local events such as the VIEX and Winterfest. Vesta also runs summer camps, and teaches ongoing circus lessons for kids and adults at Nanaimo Gymnastics School. They are funded via ArtStarts in Schools as ‘artist in residence’ to teach and perform in schools- this year teaching grade 2’s and 4’s at Coal Tyee Elementary.
