Education in ‘circus arts’ proposed in Senate


Circus Luminous, an annual production from Santa Fe’s Wise Fool features acrobats, trapeze, unicycling, clowning and other circus arts.

SANTA FE — Students in New Mexico would be better prepared to join the circus under legislation proposed in the state Senate.

The proposal, Senate Bill 412, sponsored by Democratic Sen. Nancy Rodriguez of Santa Fe, would appropriate $100,000 for circus arts education in the state — including juggling, clowning and stilt-walking.

Other possibilities include education programs in giant puppetry, unicycling and the trapeze.

The money would go to the Public Education Department.

The bill must pass at least two committee before reaching the Senate floor.
