Circus Skills

Widely known for building confidence, keeping fit, improving balance and coordination whilst encouraging a strong sense of team building through the nature of play. Our workshops introduce floor based practices such as Juggling, Poi, Diablo, Staff and Hula Hoop. Guiding absolute beginners to circus addicts. We can provide “drop in” workshops for busy events or structured sessions for a more focused group.

Stilt Walking- Beginner to Master Class

Ross Wheeler has been stilt walking for over ten years and focuses on smaller peg stilts for agile movements in interactive comedic walkabouts, stilt dancing and the recent Tiny Tour story telling show. Master Classes for circus groups involved exercises and teachings around the anatomy of walking, peg stilt walking, dancing and agile movements for different terrains. Sessions are delivered in two halves, first without stilts, the second with circus groups or individuals own stilts.

 

Poi and Prop Spinning- Beginner to Master Class

Delivered in one or two sessions the first half is focused on the anatomy of prop spinning with patterns, movements and exercises that are transferable to different props and improve coordination. The second goes into more technical use of staff and many poi variations for all levels with a variety of tricks and styles with a keen look into tangles and hyper looping.
