Circus training and performance can be a powerful tool for positive social change, bringing communities together and teaching life skills such as self-confidence, teamwork, and healthy living. Social circus organizations provide multi-dimensional circus skills training and performance opportunities aimed at enhancing the well-being of participants. I believe that circus can help change the world. I have seen this idea in action in the townships of South Africa and the barrios of Mexico City. I have learned for myself that by challenging myself and persevering toward an ambitious goal, anything is possible. As a trained and certified social circus trainer through Cirque du Soleil, I have a personal mission to support the emerging international social circus movement by sharing my own experience, by documenting and capturing the lessons learned and results of programs in various contexts, and helping to build and strengthen networks of communication and exchange between these organizations.
