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.
Drop in circus areas at busy events can be run by one or two tutors and let people of any age come and go as they please to try out the equipment with help at hand.
Structured sessions for 1-2 hours can specialise in different areas and props and include all sorts of fun games and physical warm ups for classes and groups young or old to work together.
Session can optionally also come with a renegade show to share skills learnt though out the process or contact us if you want to build a more substantial series of sessions leading to a showcase.
Beginners to Master Class
Ross Wheeler has been stilt walking for over 15 years and focuses on smaller peg stilts for agile movements in interactive comedic walkabouts and stilt dancing cabaret acts. Master Classes for circus groups involve exercises and teachings around the anatomy of peg stilt walking, dancing and agile movements for different terrains and characters. Sessions are delivered firstly by exploring the physical movements without stilts before repeating these with stilt practice and developing short peer performances. These sessions can be for young to adult ages for people who can already walk on stilts, however separate beginner stilt walking workshops can also be arranged.
