Circus Workshops for Schools

Kinetic Circus Workshops for Schools are ideal for infant, primary and secondary schools. If your school is studying the circus as its term topic then a circus day really helps bring it alive for the children! Using a circus day as a reward for end of term always leaves happy memories too!

The day begins with an incredible show using all of the equipment the children will get to use during the workshop. This includes juggling balls, clubs, boxes, contact juggling balls, diabolos, flowersticks, spinning plates and hula hoops. The show is a great introduction from us to you and also packed full of amazing tricks and skills to wow your children!

School workshops cater for classes of around 30. Sessions are bookable by half and full school day. You can of course book a session just for your class and have more time to explore the equipment.

Sessions can be either open environments for personal achievement guided by our instructor, or structured classes teaching the group as a whole and running from complete beginners techniques through to intermediate and advanced moves during the time. We will tailor the workshop to suit your school and numbers so please feel free to call and discuss exact details of what we can offer you.

After school clubs

School circus clubs run by Kinetic Circus are brilliant for helping your kids with their co-ordination, dexterity and help improve their stamina and fitness too! Booking these sessions gives your students a really great opportunity to learn and develop their skills and abilities over time.

We currently resident in The Kings School Canterbury as the circus arts tutor, running weekly term time circus skill classes. Extra curricular/after school sessions can be booked by the term and have a maximum of 15 per session. We have availability on a few week days for other schools but due to the nature of booking per term prior arrangement is necessary.

 

For the last 10 years Paul of Kinetic Circus has had a close working relationship with Laleham Gap School, Margate. The school originally was for pupils who had speech language/communication difficulties and Paul has shown great compassion, patience and formed excellent relationships with both pupils and staff over the years he has been associated with us. To come into a special school and build a relationship quickly is very difficult but Paul’s unique style, sense of fun, honesty and commitment enabled this to happen.

Over the last 5 years our pupils needs have changed and most pupils are now on the Autistic Spectrum. This brings other issues into play as our pupils are very anxious around strangers and new situations but yet again Paul took this on board and changed his approach to meet their needs. Paul has a natural rapport with young people, he accepts them as they are and treats them with respect and they in turn like and respect him. Paul really is a very good role model to young people.

As a performer Paul is second to none – a highlight in our school calendar has always been Paul and the team coming not only to lead workshops but put on displays for pupils, family, staff and other visitors. Its not just the obvious talents he has but his showmanship, excellent communication skills and magnetic personality which enamor him to his audiences. I would wholeheartedly recommend Paul to you and would not hesitate in employing him at Laleham Gap School in the future.
