Curriculum Relevance:
Force and Motion, Environmental Science. Working scientifically. Problem Solving, Teamwork.

A Fantastic framework for scientific enquiry and understanding.

An incredibly inventive, interactive and educational show that uses the fun of circus, comedy and magic to inspire scientific inquiry into the natural, physical and material world.

Join the Ring Mistress and her cast of characters to question the HOW and the WHY of circus.

What forces juggling balls up? What part do materials, air resistance, gravity and friction play? What speed is required to crack a WHIP and break the sound barrier? Why is that valuable, renewable resource, H2o so magical? Why are soap bubbles under so much pressure to float? And wait till you see what silicone bounce juggle balls can do!

Students will discover where the center of gravity is, while successfully balancing ridiculous objects in unusual ways. See them engage the Bernoulli Principle of fluid mechanics, to levitate a ball in the air, no strings attached. Hula hoops are fun too, but they require kinetic energy, inertia and angular momentum to work.

Danger Girl and her student team uncover ways to turn circus apparatus into projectiles and propulsions while she goes ballistic tackling their target practice head-on.

The latest L.E.D. circus technology with fiber optics, phosphorescents and kaleidoscopes of light and colour will illuminate students understanding of light and sound.

This show is a seriously sparkly, hilarious, costumed, colorful combination of seriously interactive science and astonishing circus.
