Our Big Top Bonanza Circus Workshop days have been developed to provide a taste of the fun, drama and excitement of the circus for pupils of all ages. You will see the children taking on new challenges and their joy at being successful. Circus skills are a wonderful way of developing basic physical skills such as balance and control, co-ordination and movement, rhythm and timing, and throwing and catching. They also encourage self-confidence, teamwork and co- operation.

They use a wide variety of teaching methods, giving the children the opportunity to see equipment being expertly used; the chance to experiment themselves; and individual attention to help them perfect their skills.
We aim to provide your school or group with a totally unforgettable experience.
