Community Work Day

Circus background

As we move along through our 10th year of operation, we are working on some long term projects here at the BCC. The purpose of these projects is to keep the Circus Center in great shape so that we can serve our community and continue to cultivate a greater connection amongst all who participate in activities at the BCC. These projects range from creating a community garden, to some long term maintenance tasks that are coming due, to refinishing our beautiful dance floors, to hosting potlucks and establishing a performance incubation program to bring new shows into the world.

This month we are hosting our first community work party. For those of you who know what an amazing value it is to be able to rent 3200 Square feet of space at only $20/hour, and want a chance to give back to the space that supports your work, this is an opportunity to contribute a little sweat equity to keep the BCC functioning at its best. This weekend we will be tackling some tasks such as weeding our rock perimeter, working on the community garden area, repairing the picnic tables, and possibly doing some deep cleaning tasks like dusting that little lip along the top of the base-boards. This is also an opportunity to get to have fun getting to know other members of the BCC community.

So please, stop by for an hour or several hours, throw a little elbow grease into the amazing space, and feel a greater sense of investment in the space that supports your work in the world. We will have some work gloves on hand, but bring your own if you have them. We will provide some snacks and refreshments. Thanks so much for caring about our space and making great things happen here!

Details: Sunday 4/20/14 from 10am to 6pm.
Bring work gloves, garden tools, rubber gloves
Enjoy community, volunteerism and snacks!

We’re looking forward to seeing you!

Hoop Path Workshop

You don’t have to be a hoop master to come to this. Colorado has some of the best hoopers in the world, but everyone, regardless of skill, is equal at HoopPath. No one wants to intimidate or be intimidated by anyone. It’s all about moving past that stuff, and just dancing.

It’s a workout. You will get sweaty. Embrace it and you’ll feel how good a hooper-detox feels!

Contact Technique Hooping Workshop

This 2 day intermediate hooping workshop will focus on the concept of contact hoop moves and techniques that will blend a series of dynamic off body movements into one another. We will be going over body wrap variations, tosses, contact breaks, hand rolls, hoop ground contact and circuits, then transitioning them into a connection tool called hook & float. Using momentum and the hoops contact with our bodies, we will discover that there is a sophisticated seamlessness present through these different techniques that will happen on its own accord. This workshop covers all newly innovated material from Nick that is accessible, easy to learn, and certain to inspire and enhance any hooper’s practice.
