Circus Workshop Team Building

Circus Workshop – Team Building

ROLL UP! ROLL UP! The circus is in town!

Structured Circus workshops for Team Building and Corporate Events

Many people have never had a chance to experiment with circus skills before. These skills require concentration and confidence, and our workshop offers a genuine learning experience and confidence booster. The workshop really helps to develop individuals within the team.

Delegates will work in pairs or small groups, allowing them to observe and learn from people within their own group. A highly enjoyable way for people to develop important skills that apply to all walks of life.

Benefits:

· Builds confidence and self-esteem.
· Develops teamwork.
· Allows delegates of all ages and abilities to excel.
· Involves both the left and right side of the body and the brain to greatly improve learning and coordination abilities.
· Helps people to deal with fear, react to the unexpected and plunge into the next challenge with confidence.

THE SKILLS

Juggling
The process of learning to juggle is a metaphor for many aspects of business life. Here, participants will be discovering techniques for learning any new skill – for example how to break tasks down into more manageable goals. Juggling is usually seen as an individual skill, but within this workshop the emphasis will be on both group and solo juggling. We actively encourage participants to inspire each other through sharing the skills that they are learning by creating their own routines.

Plate Spinning
As always very popular and fairly easy to learn. Participants are taught the correct way to spin a plate and then progress to throws, passing, balances and other tricks. A very achievable and satisfying skill to learn.

Diabolo
Once the participants have learnt the basics of the skill and taught throwing and catching and other simple tricks, they can be paired up to start passing diabolos between each other. It requires synchronised timing and precision, so to be successful, clear communication is crucial. diabolo workshop
 
Tightrope Walking
Using a low-wire that is 50cm high and under constant supervision, tightrope walking is a safe and achievable skill. To walk the tight-wire requires great balance and an ability to stay focused at all times.

Stilt Walking (Hand-held Stilts)
Learning how to use stilts is like rediscovering how to walk. There is a small degree of risk, but confidence can be built up very quickly and once basic walking is mastered, participants will move on to applying everyday movements. This is a skill in which the support of colleagues is required in a literal sense. stilt walking workshop

Balloon Modelling
Almost any shape, animal or object can be created using specialist balloons. From individual balloon models to giant group sculptures. Our facilitators will show you just how easy it can be, when you know how!

A maximum ratio of 20 delegates (preferably less) per circus instructor is suitable for most skills. The participants will learn and benefit more from working in smaller groups.
With activities such as the tightrope only one delegate can be on the wire at a time and it needs one-on-one supervision, therefore it is recommended that smaller group sizes are more appropriate.

Circus Workshops can be structured to work from between approximately one hour to a full day.

Other Skills covered include:

Unicycle, Hula Hoop, Poi, Staff Spinning,

Specialist Skills with smaller groups of delegates.

Strap-on Stilts, Fire Staff Spinning and Fire Poi
