San Francisco is home to the world-renowned School of Circus Arts, which teaches juggling, clowning, acrobatics, and every other skill one would need to work in the big tent. You can tour their facilities, which are right on the edge of Golden Gate Park. More entertaining are the expositions they frequently hold to showcase their students’ talent around town, but locations vary, so check their website for upcoming events. Be forewarned, after watching one of these, your child may want to run off and join the circus. In its own way, this can be very educational for a child to see, as he or she will learn that even the most fun-seeming careers require education, training, and commitment.
