Blackpool Circus School workshops appeal to all that are keen on sports and those that are not. Circus as a physical education, sport or personal development option is inclusive. It provides a series of activities that cater for every child (and adult!) at whatever level they enter, or wish to attain. Circus proves that the impossible becomes possible with correct tuition and application. Blackpool Circus School specialise in the education sector, and all Key Stages are catered for.
“Over the last 18 months Blackpool Circus School has worked with 11 Blackpool Schools as part of the ArtXtra project. The training and support provided by their staff has enabled pupils to develop new skills in a range of circus activities. Pupils and teachers have found the sessions to be well structured, motivating and above all fantastic fun. BlackpoolCircus Schoolhas given pupils the chance to learn new skills in a fun and safe way, I hope to get the opportunity to use your services again.” Richard Sharples, ArtXtra Project Co-ordinator
Reception and year one: An entertaining demonstration of circus skills with help from the audience. Items include a mini tightrope, balance boards, hoop spinning, scarf passing and plate spinning to a musical accompaniment.
Key Stage 1/2: Hands on Circuit workshop. A class at a time (Max 35) following a quick demo will try up to 7 items chosen from the Diabolo, Plate spinning, Balance boards, Fun wheels, Juggling, Flower sticks and Poi.
Key Stage 3/4: Hands on circuit workshop. As above but with the possible addition of Stilt walking, Rola Bola and Unicycling. As a taster workshop we recommend at least an hour with each class. We will tailor our workshops to suit your requirements. We can come from an hour locally to a whole day, week or term. When we do a term of after school clubs in a School, the children will perform a show on the last day to the whole school and their parents.
Performance in School with the J team: Two of our young teachers who have developed outstanding skills. They can perform a 45 minute show to the whole school featuring trials and Giraffe Unicycles, plus Juggling with Clubs, balls and rings.
