Foolhardy circus skills workshops
Circus Skills Workshops are a fun way for children to spend an afternoon or morning. Playing with traditional circus props (juggling, diablo, tightrope, devil sticks, unicycle, balance poles, Pedal Gos, Fun Wheels, and plate spinning), in a relaxed semi-formal workshop structure. These sessions encourage perseverance, diligence, self discipline, hand-eye coordination, manipulation skills and dexterity. The carefully worked out structure means that children of all capabilities achieve something.
The workshops are taught by professional circus artistes from the Foolhardy Circus. The children get real, hands-on tuition from people who have spent over 20 years teaching and performing.
