Circus Skills Workshops for Children

Our circus skills workshops for schools help teach younger children (Key stage 1 and 2) the fundamental skills of movement, co-ordination and balance. Build self-confidence whilst having fun and learning to trust your team-mates!

By using a variety of circus equipment, the children learn fun ways to improve their physical abilities and develop their health and fitness. Developing mutual trust and self-esteem can also improve children’s mental health; fostering acceptance of all our differences and celebrating abilities.

Our trainers are professional entertainers and performers, so they make all the kids’ circus lessons fun and engaging. Experts at breaking down each of the circus skills and tricks into manageable bite-sized steps, we help each child to achieve and build confidence as they progress through the equipment. We’ve developed and honed our teaching methods over decades, so you can trust us to deliver an unforgettable experience.

Travelling Workshops for Infant, Junior & Primary Schools

As a teacher, headteacher or school governor, you are always looking for ways to improve your school’s range of extra-curricular activities and enrich the learning experiences of your pupils.

Our circus skills workshop is developed for children in Years 1 to 6 (aged 4 to 11 years) and travels direct to your school. We cover primary schools in West Sussex, East Sussex, London, Bedford and the Home Counties – and we provide all equipment.

Educational Benefits of Circus Arts

Circus classes and circus workshops are perfect for:

Cognitive benefits

Helping children with concentration

Circus skills demand concentration and attention. If the kids are engaged and having fun, they sharpen their focus without too much effort.

Confidence

Building confidence in children

Whether walking the tightrope, juggling scarves or throwing and catching a flower stick… it takes confidence to try, make mistakes and keep refining the process until they improve.

Listening skills

Increasing children’s learning styles

We encourage visual, aural, physical, spatial, interpersonal and solitary styles of learning.

Imagination and creativity

Nurturing children’s creativity and imagination

Through performance, expression with play and vivid colour, we can ignite their imagination and fuel their desire to create their own routines.

Body orientation

Improving children’s physical and body awareness

Understanding how their body moves, feels and fits into different spaces, allows children to interact with others and their environment in new and exciting ways.

Team activity

Teaching children to appreciate the arts

Circus arts can teach the chidren to be open-minded, expressive, curious and more confident to take risks.

Workshops for Schools

We’re adept at tailoring the workshop to a variety of arts and fitness topics your school may be studying, for example:

  • fitness weeks
  • circus topic
  • healthy eating

Being performers, as well as teachers, these values are essential to our ability to perform consistently and with vigour.  Your tutor can engage in question and answer sessions with the pupils as part of your topic.

Testimonials

“I wanted to thank you for coming to Queenswell, the children and staff had such fun in their sessions. I asked the teachers to get some feedback from the children and for their feedback as well so I thought you may like to hear their comments as it was all extremely positive.”

“Fantastic experience for our pupils at Fairisle Infant School. Competent and confident coach with excellent resources an activities. I would strongly recommend the company to other schools.”

Marc Mauri, Fairisle Infant School, Southampton

Primary School Circus Workshop, Gloucestershire

“Nikki was absolutely excellent. She transmitted her skills with enthusiasm and energy that did not waver throughout the day. Her introductory session was pitched just right with a good balance of skill and encouragement. Seeing and engaging seven classes over a wide age range must have been exhausting but Nikki made it appear effortless. The children were completely hooked and wanted to do more. She had great control of the children whatever their ages and the activities were appropriate and stimulating. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone for a circus skills day. Thank you.”

Jane Sparling, Headteacher, Fairford Primary School, Fairford
