All circus skills workshops are adapted in length to the needs of the school and its timetable. A circus skills workshop starts with a friendly introduction and chat about safety followed by some simple warm up Exercises/Balancing. The basics of juggling, its rhythms and patterns are then taught firstly using scarves, progressing, where appropriate, to one, two and three balls.
All circus workshop equipment: ~ Peacock Feathers, Scarves, Balls, Clubs, Rings, Spinning Plates, Diablo, Devil sticks, Hula Hoops, Balance sticks, unicycles and Hand held stilts are fully discussed and demonstrated prior to the pupils use.
Circus Rico can confidently run a circus skills workshop with groups of 30-35 pupils, which are a recognised safe number for such an activity.
Also small groups allow for individual teaching and guidance.
Larger groups would require an addition tutor
Workshops are available all year round and are tailored to your school/college's needs. From short taster sessions with several groups in one day to more in depth work with one group over a longer period of time and also including performance projects.
We work with age groups from nursery through to adult, with people of all abilities and all needs.
