The Social Circus Foundation is committed to advancing physical literacy through the circus arts. By empowering students to move with confidence and competence in a wide variety of activities and environments, circus helps develop the whole person—not just in physical terms, but also social, cognitive and behavioural.

A deep sense of physical literacy helps build motivation, confidence, physical competence, life skills, and a lifelong appreciation for both the arts and sport, while the inherently cooperative nature of circus builds trust, fosters connections and encourages growth both personally and collectively as children and youth learn together.
