St. Luke's was very pleased with Hands-On Circus. They got the children involved and active, which is was exactly what we were looking for. I don't know who determines the cost the performer, but we almost didn't book Hands-On Circus because of cost. At $150 per hour, it was at the top of our budget. We passed over many acts due to cost. Just something to consider for schools. Given the chance, we would certainly recommend Hands-On Circus.
