The Pyroflys are offering circus arts training to youth and families involved with YES. They will be teaching cyr wheel, poi, hoops, juggling, balance and acrobatics techniques.
Circus arts can offer youth a forum to celebrate being different, to take safe risks, and to get attention in positive ways. The Pyroflys helped create the Peterborough Academy of Circus arts in 2015, where they run social circus programs for marginalized youth.
Members of the Pyroflys stopped by YES to demonstrate their skills. To see their demonstration and to find out more information about the program, please see the media links below.
