Calling all kids aged 7 - teen! Run away with the circus afterschool without actually having to leave home. Circus stars and Moody Street Circus Directors Sacha and Melinda Pavlata host this supportive, challenging and affirming after-school program in their beautiful circus studio. Students must be dressed in appropriate workout attire (see below) and be able to listen and follow directions for maximum safety of all participants. Classes meet Wednesdays from 3:45 - 5:30 p.m.
***We cap attendance at 10 kids to ensure maximum time on all equipment and to promote the highest quality experience for all.
Please call or email Melinda (email@example.com) at Moody Street Circus at 781 893 2491 with questions, to check if there is room in the session and/or to register and reserve a spot for your child.
Students in our Moody Street Circus Afterschool Program will practice tumbling, pyramid formation, rola bola, rolling globe, tightrope walking, trampoline, juggling skills and mini trampoline. They will also learn the basics in circus aerial arts including cloud swing, static trapeze, rings, web, lyra and silks.
Attire: Moody Street Circus is a gum-free, street-shoe free zone, even for parents who are dropping off and picking up. Parents and caregivers are always welcome to stay and watch the action on our comfy studio futons. Camp is conducted barefoot, but indoor-use only sneakers and/or acrobatic shoes are suggested for work on unicycle and low wire. Long hair must be worn pulled back in a pony-tail or in braids. We go upside-down on equipment and always follow the SAFETY FIRST! Rule, so: Leotards and shorts or leggings for girls, shorts and shirts that can be well-tucked in for boys. Kids should not be worried about tucking in their shirts when they are upside down, it is very distracting and dangerous when you are learning new tricks.
*Waiver forms must be completed for each camper or participation in camp will not be allowed. We will send you a waiver form after you have registered, or you can request one prior by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any additional questions, please call Melinda at Moody Street Circus : 781 893 2491.
Reviews of Moody Street Circus:
Philippe Petit, renowned funambulist most recently featured in Man on Wire, writes of Sacha Pavlata, Moody Street Circus Founder:
“I met Alexandre Pavlata in 1972 at the Cirque d’Hiver of Paris. He was helping some kids, backstage, to perfect their somersaults. I remember the gentle yet strong way he was directing their progresses, there was a lot of joy, but the results were prompt.
As I watch Sacha over the years, becoming slowly the “best circus teacher” (his well-earned reputation today), I realized that a very special chemistry was the secret of his so unique ability: Sacha could offer in the classes he gave, the flavor of European Circus Tradition. He was born and raised in a traveling circus family, therefore was quickly acquainted with the constant training, the tough discipline, the respect for other artists, and the ability to understand rigging and to perform all aspects of circus profession.
But Sacha had to offer, blended to this heritage, the benefits of his own life and personality: he has traveled all over the world, therefore mastering several languages, he had coached numerous pupils of diverse ways of life, nationalities, age, goals and talents, had become a father, and had developed a sparkling intelligence at introducing the unfamiliar to a demanding craft, with surprising results.
It is the blending of the deeply traditional world of European circuses, with a modern international expertise that made the instruction of Master Teacher Pavlata so effective, and so rich, so outstanding."
"I love this place; I want to live here! I could sleep on the trapeze!!!" (Birthday girl Stella Hu)
"This was the most exciting party my daughter has ever attended!" (Wellesley Mom)
“My 5th grade daughter has been taking a circus class at Moody Street Circus and she loves it! Her favorite activities are the silks and the lyra. It gives her such a sense of freedom and accomplishment! I see it every time she comes back from class. Thank you Melinda and Sacha for encouraging the students to push their limits in a safe, fun environment!” --

WHAT: On Wednesday, September 10th, 2014, from 6:30PM - 8:30PM, The Beehive's co-owner and resident curator Jennifer Epstein and special guest curator, gallery YES.OUI.SI co-founder, Olivia Ives-Flores will co-host the 18th installment in The Beehive's continuing art series entitled Sting! 18: LANDSCAPES: Between Tradition & Imagination, featuring twelve Boston artists working with paint, photography and sculpture. From literal translations of space to abstracted and imagined environments, the exhibition aims to re-interpret the time old subject of the landscape. The exhibition provides the viewer an opportunity to transcend The Beehive and travel with the artists to their created spaces. From Boston with Percy Fortini's spray paint and oil painting of Commonwealth Avenue to the dunes of Aquinnah in Martha's Vineyard with Niko Ewing's 4" x 5" photo collage, to the streets of Lyon, France in Zacharie Lanoue's photo stitch piece, then back to the crib in Havana, Cuba in Enrique Flores- Galbis' oil painting "La Cuna" and out to the far crevices of the imagination in Jamie Calderwood's mixed media topographical dioramas.
The ongoing Sting! series always signifies the launch of a new art installation at The Beehive and highlights an evening of great live entertainment, food & libation specials along with amazing art! For this 18th installment, Jennifer Epstein joined forces with Olivia Ives-Flores to bring together a remarkable group of artists from all over New England. Guest curator Olivia Ives-Flores is an artist and entrepreneur currently living and working in Boston. Originally from New York City, Olivia found her love for the arts at a young age having been introduced to museums by her artistic parents.

Performance by Natman Band:
Join us for an evening at The Beehive with great food, cool art, and a special live musical performance by the Natman Band. Natman Band is a collection of Boston's best avant-garde and expressionistic musicians lead by the legendary Nat Mugavero. He is a musical visionary who captures the imaginations and talents of the best players in the country and pushes the limit to create pure music. This is a fun, spontaneous and virtuosic event.
Katani’s talents and experiences are far reaching in the areas of singing (Gospel, Jazz, R&B), theatrical productions (as featured performer as well as producer, director or vocal arranger). She is perhaps best known as the “Inspirational MC” at the Original House of Blues’-Sunday Gospel Brunch where she was a featured performer as well as the MC for ten years. Katani can now be seen fronting her own band or as the lead female vocalist for Manhattan Touch band, singing the anthem at a Celtic’s game, or as a featured vocalist at Symphony Hall for Gospel Night at the Pops.
Guitar One Magazine calls guitarist/vocalist Coco Montoya "the hottest southpaw in the blues" and raves about his "master touch and killer tone." The Boston Globe succinctly states that Montoya's music is "hot, blistering soul." From his early days as a drummer to his current status as one of the top-drawing guitarists and vocalists on the blues-rock scene, Montoya earned his status through years of hard work and constant touring. It all started with a chance meeting in the mid-1970s with legendary bluesman Albert Collins, who offered Montoya a gig as his drummer. Albert took an immediate liking to Montoya, becoming his mentor and teaching his new protégé the secrets of Collins' "icy hot" style of blues guitar. Five years later, British blues icon John Mayall happened to catch Montoya at a jam session and was blown away. Mayall recruited him as his guitarist in the legendary Bluesbreakers, and Montoya spent the next 10 years touring non-stop, proving himself to be a world-class guitar master in one of the most renowned blues bands in existence. The rest is History!
Montoya is a self taught guitar slinger who plays with an emotional intensity few string benders possess. Playing left-handed and upside down like Albert King, Montoya learned his guitar techniques from his years with Collins. "I never had a lesson in my life. "I would watch other guitar players to catch what they did. I would wait for that one moment when they would do it, and just stare at them and try and remember where their hand was, where their fingers were.
After three records with Mayall as a member of the Bluesbreakers, Coco decided in 1993 it was time to take the lessons from his two musical fathers and begin to sculpt a solo career. In the early 1990's he was signed to Blind Pig Records and released three critically acclaimed discs, Gotta Mind To Travel, Ya Think I'd Know Better, and Just Let Go. In the middle of his Blind Pig days, Coco also received national recognition when he was named the Blues Foundation's Best New Blue Artist at the 1996 Blues Music Awards.
In 2000, Coco took his music up a notch and signed with Alligator Records, the country's top blues label. In his seven years with Alligator, Coco released three more outstanding records, Suspicion, Can't Look Back, and 2007's Dirty Deal.
In 2009, Coco Montoya found a new home in the old world. Germany's premier blues label, Ruf Records, signed the guitar giant and is poised to bring Coco Montoya's heart to a world audience. I Want It All Back was the first step in that commitment.
"This is an exciting journey," said Coco. "To my fans who love my guitar, I say come to me with open ears. The guitar is still there, but it's not the only voice I have. Listen to me as an artist who is growing and grow with me." Look for a NEW Live Record to be released on Ruf Records in early 2014.

Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, André Obin debuted in 2008 with a pair of digital download releases — the buzzing, predominantly instrumental "Colorwheel" single and five-track Premonition EP — for the Moodgadget label. Touring, along with additional short-form digital releases for Moodgadget, Trouw, Klopfgeist, and Mina, followed. At the 2012 Boston Music Awards, he was named Performer of the Year. The next year, he released his first proper album, The Arsonist, on Sky Council. The follow up, Ways of Escape (2014), show how Obin's sound has undergone a significant refinement with a gradual shift into a moody, tautly crafted, and modern form of synth pop.
