Writing/Essay/Journal
If you’ve ever been to a circus you can picture the colors, sounds, lights, and hear the barker call out, “Come one, come all!” Rhythmic Circus uses words, music, and dance to create a circus mood. The musicians say that they hope to help you “find the hidden dancer that lives within you.” How do they recreate a circus without any elephants or clowns? Watch the video again and then quickly write down all the words you think of. Write a review of the performance that would allow someone who hasn’t seen it to understand what you saw. Be sure to include insights into the words, the instruments, the costumes, and the dancing.

Activity
