FOCUSfish Four Fundraisers:  Circus Arts + Fitness = Fun!

FOCUSFish Director Kristy Beauvais guides a toddler to hang upside down in nylon ‘silks.’ The Topanga-based, non-profit organization teaches students, ages 3 – senior adult, how to have fun, get fit and express themselves.

This summer, FOCUSfish will be performing “RISE,” a series of four Family-Friendly Flying Circus aerial arts shows at the FOCUSfish Aerial Pavilion at Big Rock Ranch on four Saturdays: July 7, July 14, July 28 and August 11.

Southern Californians of different ages, economic and racial backgrounds, and different abilities, join together to entertain, enlighten and raise money and awareness for the FOCUSfish cause: provide training to help people become fit for a lifetime and have fun in the process.

Young Camp kids will perform alongside special guests in “Freedom Flies” on July 7, in honor of Independence Day; on July 14 they rev up the optimism with “Because We Can;” “Let Love Rule” sets the standard on July 28; and “People Help the People” on August 11. All shows run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Enjoy great music, picnicking and unique family fun for all at the Big Top in lush Topanga Canyon. Suggested donation is $12. All events are accessible to people with disabilities.

FOCUSfish Aerial Pavilion at Big Rock Ranch (Cali-Camp), is located at 1717 Old Topanga Canyon Rd., Topanga 90290 (323) 691-5747; www.focusfish.com
