Remote Learning Courses
A Mix of Juggling, Geography & Culture for Students K-8 by International Juggler Michael Menes
I’m excited to announce that in the coming months I’ll be working on a new project that will take my ABOVE & BEYOND Travelogue Show into classrooms throughout Maine, New England and possibly far beyond! Starting in September of 2020, I’ll be offering live streaming from my creative home studio in rural Maine to students and classrooms via the internet. The remote learning courses will be supported by pre-recorded video tutorials that students and teachers will have access to in order to develop good work habits, concentration and confidence building activities. This program will also include discovering people and places around the globe through engaging, fast-moving ABOVE & BEYOND Juggling Travelogues that I shot, edited and collected during over 25 years of touring worldwide. Each ABOVE & BEYOND Remote Learning Course will provide instruction, share fun and interesting stories about cultures and places and connect teachers and administrators to where to order supplies and equipment needed to keep students engaged and learning. This innovative program is being designed specifically as an intimate classroom workshop-assembly program. Available by subscription to schools, libraries, museums and other institutions, this will be an affordable way for schools to connect with a specialized, professional teaching artist. Programs can be licensed individually or as a full school year package.

LEARN ABOUT THE WORLD WITH A PROFESSIONAL INTERNATIONAL JUGGLER!
As a juggler, photographer and videographer who has traveled extensively throughout the world through engagements at international festivals, television performances, and over 18 years of travel as a guest entertainer on a dozen cruise lines, I have used comedy, juggling, physical theater, video editing and photography to make an original theatrical experience for audiences that reinvents the notion of a travelogue show. With such an abundance of stories, photographs and videos collected over the years, I have an endless supply of amazing things to share!
“Michael’s show (Above and Beyond) was excellent. Our audience simply went wild over every one of the individual sketches and juggling sequences. His technical ability is amazing and he is a good storyteller as well. Michael is a real pro, both on stage and off. He was a delight to work with from our first conversation to the post-show wrap-up. Michael also conducted workshops for us and they were all over-capacity and extremely well received. Michael gets top ratings from us in every area!! We hope to have him back in the future.”
