Circus skills workshops in schools are now available in two basic formats:-
We can do workshops during the school day (often a single day and with a number of different classes).
Or we can do after-school sessions (generally over a 5-week period)
During our sessions we will teach a wide variety of manipulation skills (e.g. juggling, diabolo, devil stick etc.) and balance skills (e.g. feather balance, stilts, tight-rope). Obviously the more time we have with a particular group of students, the wider and more in-depth the skills taught.
Many schools like the one-day format because they can include it as part of a theme. Some themes we have noted are medieval, sport, art, we’ve even taught workshops in french.
Other schools like the after-school format as the students have more time to develop and are able to work towards both putting on a show and receiving (a) certificate(s).
Fees are dependent upon the location of the school but are generally about £250 for a whole day or £600 for an after-school session. Often the after-school session is funded by the students rather than the school. To facilitate this we offer an assembly a week or two before the course to encourage participation.
