No TeenBUST! in 2024

Hello Wise Fool community of the present and future!

Many of you may know one of our very favorite programs we offer here at Wise Fool: a nine-day circus intensive for middle-school aged girls, trans and nonbinary students called TeenBUST!

We are sad to inform our community that we will not be offering this program this year. This program runs on grants and due to a lack of funding, we are not able to move forward with the program in 2024.

Teen BUST! provides students the opportunity to work with professional circus instructors, learning to articulate their unique voices and bodies as they discover the wonders of stilt-walking, aerials, acrobatics, and clowning. The program also includes activities led by Wise Fool and partner organizations dedicated to cultivating skills in self confidence, teamwork, and leadership.

This program has been running for 10 years at Wise Fool and is the only program we run where students are nominated by teachers at school and enter the program with no cost to the family. We are able to serve students who might not otherwise know about Wise Fool but who teachers think would really benefit from the community and training.

Again, we are deeply sad to not be able to run this program this year. We will do everything in our power to be able to run this program again in 2025! Thank you so much for all your support.
