Group Circus Skills Taster Workshop

Short Circus Workshop

A popular 1-2 hour popular session for up to 30 participants (a class). Easily achievable skills like feather-balancing are taught to the whole group first. Success breeds success! Trainers give an entertaining demonstration of skills and participants either choose which to concentrate on or are divided into groups that move round activities.

Full day Circus Workshop

More skills are added, including:  tight wire, stilt-walking or unicycles and pyramids… and the group can perform skills at the end of the session, to each other or an informal audience e.g. family or colleagues.
