Jim Moyer Circus Club
About Our Club!
In August 1968 Oakview Elementary School (Fairfax County Public School System) opened its doors and Jim Moyer was on staff as the first Physical Education teacher.  In his first month Coach Moyer founded and organized the Oakview Elementary School Exhibitional Activities Club, a school sponsored organization with emphasis on developing children's acrobatic and circus skills.
In September 1968 the club began to perform for the public.  The shows at first concentrated on tumbling and balancing acts, then over the years we added many other acts such as juggling, stilt walking, rolling globe,  unicycles of various heights, German gym wheel, quartet adagio, rope jumping, plate and rope spinning, and contortion.   Our early performances were in shopping malls, and we have since branched out to include parades, basketball half time shows, festivals and community service/non-profit events.  Over the years we have made over 2000 appearances and today we average thirty to forty performances a year!

We maintain a troupe of 30 - 40 kids that range in age between 7 and 17 years old and over the years some 4,000 students have participated in the Oakview Exhibition Club experience!   Most of the children are current or former Oakview Elementary School students, but invited performers come from schools throughout Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC.
We invite all children who have an interest in developing circus skills to join our club and participate in our performances (club size is limited).  There is no cost to join our club and the training is free.  All we ask is that you work really hard and participate in at least one half of our shows.  Directions to the club training gym as well as the rules and regulations are in the Join Us section.
