The benefits of circus for children

Why run circus workshops in clubs and schools?

  • Circus is a fun, enjoyable activity that will engage and excite the children.
  • Circus skills teaches children patience, perseverance and how to work for their goals.
  • Circus is a non-competitive physical activity, great for encouraging activity in those who don't enjoy team sports.¬†
  • Circus provides a great platform for children to connect with each other and form friendships.
  • As the children gain a sense of achievement from each small success they are encouraged to want to continue and their self confidence grows.

  • We run the workshops in a way that encourages the children to discover the joy of learning.

What is involved

Overview

  • We provide enthusiastic, encouraging, experienced and highly skilled instructors.
  • We provide equipment to suit all ages and abilities.
  • Session lengths can vary from 30 minutes to an hour (closer to an hour is preferable) in order to fit in with the school timetable.
  • Circus skills are best suited to Year 1 and above as we find reception and nursery age children are too young to have developed the coordination skills.
  • We teach in both primary and secondary schools and will provide the schools with details of where children can get their own circus equipment in order to carry on learning.

Structure for the Day

  • The instructor will happily begin the day with an assembly to demonstrate the equipment which will give more time for learning during the sessions.
  • The instructor will begin each session with a demonstration of all the types of equipment to inspire the children with the potential of what they could learn and achieve, and introduce them to the basics of each prop.
  • Then they will support the children in learning whatever equipment and tricks they choose to learn.
  • We encourage self-guided learning and run the sessions in an open workshop format with the instructor on hand to help the students as they need it. Students are encouraged to work together to help each other learn, and to connect through choreographing short routines.
  • At the end of the sessions the students are invited to perform their new tricks and routines to the class.

Circus Workshop FAQs

Circus Workshop FAQs

What equipment will be at a circus workshop?

At our circus workshops we have a large variety of equipment to suit all ages, including grown ups! We bring juggling beanbags, juggling scarves, juggling balls and juggling clubs, spinning plates, hula hoops, poi, staffs, flower sticks, diabolo and pedal gos. Sometimes we also bring unicycles and stilts. 

At our hula hoop workshops we bring A LOT of hula hoops! In many sizes, weights (and colours), there is one to suit everyone!

Who are the instructors?

All of our workshop instructors are highly experienced professional circus instructors, many of whom are also performers. They are all skilled in each type of equipment and excellent at passing on their skills and knowledge. They are DBS checked,  love sharing the joy of circus and are friendly, enthusiastic and personable. 

Are circus workshops suitable for children and adults with disabilities or learning difficulties?

Circus workshops are definitely suitable for children and adults with disabilities or learning difficulties. Circus can be really rewarding and we don't think anyone should have to miss out because of disabilities. We can adapt our workshops to suit all abilities. Just let us know at the time of booking and we will make allowances and adjust the way we teach and what kit we will bring. 

Are circus workshops safe?

Our priority is always safety. Our DBS checked instructors care that everyone in their workshop is safe as well as having fun and learning. We check over our kit to make sure it is intact and safe, we keep our workshop areas as tidy as possible to prevent trip hazards, and we only allow people to use the equipment as intended. The instructors keep a keen watch over the participants to make sure they are being sensible with the equipment and using it safely.

Do I need to hire a hall for a kids party?

Although we can run parties in parks or large gardens, due to our not-always-fabulous British weather(!) we do recommend that you hire a hall to host a circus or hula hoop party. It needs to be quite spacious as circus props and hula hoops take up quite a lot of space so the children need to spread out. It helps to have a minimum least 3m ceiling height. A village hall, scout hall or school hall is usually absolutely fine. If in doubt, ask us for advice.

What is the minimum age?

We find circus is most fun and has the most benefit for children over 5 years old. Younger than this and they are often still developing the coordination necessary. We recommend not booking parties and workshops for under 5s. 

Do your instructors have DBS checks?

Yes, all of our circus instructors have DBS checks.
