Jumping Juniors is a non profit organization designed to mentor young girls ages 5 to 18. Specializing in teaching double Dutch.

The Nouveau Sud Circus Project is a contemporary social circus initiative rooted in the “underground” dance/acrobatic/physical theatre scenes present in the vast array of cultures in the urban regions of Charlotte. Through physical language — dance, movement, and circus — these communities tell stories of their struggles, histories, traditions, transformations, and iconography, as we examine the idea of what it is to be a citizen of the ‘new’ south.
