Circus Skills workshop
This workshop contains a variety of exciting and fun activities where you can learn to do things that will amaze people and perhaps be the start of a new hobby that can easily be done at home, inside or outside. You will perfect your hand-eye coordination and "get active" learning some of the skills that you will only have ever seen in the Big Top or on television. You might be very surprised at how little we use both the right and left hemispheres of our brains.
The workshops can be run for young people with of all ages and abilities throughout the Key Stages and especially closely with dyslexia, ADHD and autism.
The skills that can be chosen for these workshops are:
- Juggling (scarves, balls)
- Object balancing
- Plate spinning
