ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Sure, it’s fun and yes, it’s exciting (the kids will love every minute) but did you know that the skills and training tools passed on through our workshops will leave a lasting and positive impact on your students?
The rich constructive stimulation our circus workshops provide have a hugely positive influence on your students growth and learning through physicality.
One of the focuses for the younger children is to activate their vestibular systems which will increase skills in balance and focus. The aim for the older children is to create body awareness, physical creativity, and an ideology of healthiness and freedom.
It’s like Brain Gym at the Circus!
This lesson plan has been used by the Chores artists to teach groups of children with great success in schools and for companies like Flipside, the Flying Fruit Flies and Circus Oz.
Classes are fast paced and full of action – never a moment to spare! Students explore a full range of circus skills including the Chores boys’ own invention, Tyre Trampolining, as well as juggling, diabolo sticks, games and more!
