PHOTOS: Universoul Circus teaches West Philly kids how to clown around

Members of the UniverSoul Circus stopped by Universal Bluford Charter School in West Philadelphia on Wednesday to run a mini-circus camp where students learned how to perform acrobatics, the limbo, dance-offs, balloon animals, and much more.

Performers “provided children with the historical background of the circus, inner-workings of what it takes to be a performer and how healthy and fit one must be to perform,” a press release from the school said.

Universoul Circus will be performing in Philly Oct. 22 to Nov. 15.

It’s their 21st year performing in Philly.
