The most popular workshop covers plate spinning, diabolo,
ball juggling, devil stick, (hand held) stilt walking,
and unicycling. It's suitable for ages 7 and
over, and requires a large, high ceiling-ed
room. A two hour session gives everyone time to try
each skill, although shorter workshops are possible.
Whether the aim is to teach new skills or to provide
entertainment, all the equipment used is demonstrated
first, along with safety points, and one to one help
is given throughout the session whilst participants
have a go.
circus skills isn't dependent on some natural ability,
but takes patience, determination, practice, problem
solving. Although each individual must master the
skills for themselves, groups tend to work co-operatively;
observing each other, making suggestions, comparing
approaches etc. Once the basics are mastered, there
are many skills which can be performed by two or more
people, where obviously all those involved must work
together to succeed. All of this makes circus
workshops ideal for a team building course,
or just as a fun day out.
All workshops are fully insured for personal injury.
There are many other skills which can be taught including
tightrope, various fire techniques and strap-on stilt walking;
