Thank you for participating in this American Youth Circus Organization survey. We (Jackie Davis, Ed.M., and Jen Agans) are researching core competencies (defined levels of expertise that are essential or fundamental to a particular job) for youth circus practitioners and your help is greatly appreciated.
In September 2010, twenty-five youth circus arts program directors, teachers, and practitioners, led by Jackie Davis, Ed.M., gathered at the biennial educator’s conference of the American Youth Circus Organization at the New England Center for Circus Arts in Brattleboro, Vermont to identify, discuss, and recommend core competencies in their profession. This survey asks you to what extent these competencies (above and beyond the teaching of circus skills) are currently in practice in your organization, and how important you think they are to the youth circus profession.
With the information collected in this survey, AYCO hopes to be able to better meet your needs as youth circus educators, and the results of the survey will be published for AYCO members.
If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Jen Agans (firstname.lastname@example.org)
