Workshop and Educational Tours

Working with young people and schools

Circus provides a unique experience to engage students and enrich their learning. From workshops, educational tours, to our Sensory Circus, we are confident that circus can offer something different and special to young people of all ages and abilities.

Circus activities can enhance your school curriculum by linking with PE, dance and drama as well as exploring themes such as resilience and teamwork.

£2,500 would pay for workshops in local schools, introducing 150 young people to circus

We offer a range of activities that can help develop hand-eye coordination, balance, strength and fitness through skills such as juggling, tightwire, acrobatics and stilt walking.

Our bespoke workshops can take a variety of forms from inset days, reward days, extracurricular activities, to integration within PE curriculum. All workshops can develop team and confidence building, with a focus on play and creativity. We also offer a more progressive approach that can work towards increasing skills or for performance outcomes.

It’s our aim to ensure that circus can be an accessible art form, and through ongoing partnerships and training with SEN schools and inclusive charities we are able to offer circus workshops for participants of all abilities
