Wow Hoop baby circus performance provides families with infants an easy way to introduce the liveliness and joy of circus to everyday life. During the workshop session, participants learn scarf tricks and partner acrobatics. This encourages self-assurance in handling infants, brings fun to home life and is good for the children’s overall development.
Mette Ylikorva trained as a circus instructor in Finland, at the Turku University of Applied Arts, and completed studies as a circus trainer for people with special needs. She has worked as a circus trainer and performer since 1999. After becoming a parent she noticed the lack of circus opportunities for small children. She started developing various circus forms adapted for infants, with her own child.
The performance has toured internationally at child health centers, cultural centers, festivals and children’s events since 2008.
