Musical Theater major Matt Spencer and several other students from IUP benefitted from a recent performance stop by Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus at IUP.

Clowns Dave and Cherie shared skills-building techniques in a session on the art of clowning in a visit ahead of their April 2012 shows at Kovalchik Convention and Athletic Complex. The session added to the “toolbox” of skills and knowledge that Spencer, from Exton, Pa., is learning at IUP.

The Kovalchick Complex’s efforts to get performers into the classroom adds to the many workshops contracted by IUP’s Lively Arts Ovations! series.
