Circus Sensible have been working at all sorts of venues all over the UK for over 25 years. We have a huge amount of experience in working with many different groups of all ages and abilities.
“Our school day started with a demonstration assembly for the whole school which was both highly skilful and entertaining. The children were captivated. Workshops followed whereby all children had the opportunity to try a new skill with professional support. Would strongly recommend. A great day had by all.” - Mrs J Smith, Deputy Head, Robin Hood Primary School, Kingston Upon Thames.
A Circus Skills workshop is a great addition to any event, whether it’s in one of our beautiful Circus tents or not. Circus skills appeal to children AND adults. A highly visual attraction and a chance for people of all ages to have a go at a wide range of Circus skills. Great fun and good for you too!
Circus skills workshops include Juggling with Scarves, Balls and Clubs, Plate Spinning, Diabolo, Devil-stick, Hula Hoop, Stilts, Balancing, Cigar Boxes, Poi, Lolo Balls, Chinese Ribbons etc etc. Unicycling and Tightrope can be organised on request.
Circus skills offer a huge range of benefits to children and adults of all ages and abilities. Perhaps the greatest benefit of having a go at Circus skills is that almost anyone can achieve so much in such a short time, giving the participant a great sense of achievement and immediate positive feedback from those around them. This leads to a more positive self image and an increase in self confidence in many children. Many of our circus workshops also include time for the participants to demonstrate the circus skills they have been learning.
Circus skills also help develop and improve concentration skills. This is particularly evident in those children with shorter attention spans. When we run Circus workshops in schools the teachers are often amazed that one or more children who usually have a problem concentrating are doing better than anyone else in the class!
Learning Circus skills also offers great benefits in terms of physical co-ordination and physical fitness. Circus workshops fit very well into the school curriculum under PE and co-ordination development. In fact there are many areas where Circus workshops offer great opportunities for curriculum enrichment. These are just some of the benefits to be gained from Circus skills workshops. We encourage all these and more whilst always remembering.....
