Due to COVID-19, our clowns are unable to perform their weekly “clown rounds” at hospitals and community centers in Los Angeles county. As clowning can have a profound impact on a one’s emotional and physical well-being, we have adapted our practice to offer FREE VIRTUAL CLOWNING SESSIONS. The session combines clinically effective modalities such as music, theatre, play, and humor. Being in a fully virtual world will not stop our clowns from alleviating pain and anxiety, building community, empowering children, and greatly improving the hospital or stay-at-home experience for those who might be isolated at this time.
Sign up for your individualized clowning session here:
*The session will be a 15 minute private session with two medical clowning via the Zoom platform (your session will be encrypted to ensure it cannot be tampered with and no information will be shared between the participants or with third parties).
*The participant will need a device that can connect to the internet (computer, cellphone, ipad) to access this session. Click the Zoom session link emailed to you at your scheduled time and two medical clowns will be waiting to play!
If you are under the age of 18, please make sure an adult (whether it be a family member or medical professional) is nearby.
All of the medical clowns have received formal training by the University of Southern California School of Dramatic Arts.
