Students enrolled in CYC Minis will be buddied with a Team Member (ages 11-14) to help the younger students feel comfortable and supported, as well as help them navigate any issues they face.  This mentor/mentee relationship will also give the CYC Minis an opportunity to build a unique bond with their older peers as they begin their circus journey at CircEsteem.
Skills Stations 1 and Circus Exploratory: These rotations will include stations ranging from juggling, unicycle, gym wheel, trapeze, tiny on trapeze, silks, lyra, clowning, and many other CircEsteem circus skills.  Coaches will decide which skills are offered at teh beginning of each session based on a combination of what the students want to learn and what the coaches believe will be best for student circus development.  Students will choose their first and second choices for Skill Stations every session.
