Circus Workshops for Schools

Kinetic Circus provides highly entertaining and engaging circus workshops for Schools in Kent. Our workshops cater for reception class to year 6, all forms of secondary and further education.

Every session begins with the show, this is packed full of skills and tricks for the class to watch and safety information too. The circus equipment everyone gets to play with are juggling scarves, balls, boxes, clubs, flower sticks, hula hoops, diabolo and spinning plates.

We will tailor the workshop to suit your needs so please feel free to call and discuss exact details of what we can offer you.

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.

We have annually used Paul of Kinetic Circus Workshops for our ‘Circus Day’ and Open/Sports Day Circus display. Paul has never failed to impress the staff, students and guests with his physical circus skills and huge personality. Every year he is challenged to get a diabolo on to a high telephone wire; every year he succeeds.

Paul is a person who relates very well to both adults and students. As a special school, this is one of Paul’s major strengths as he really encourages our students to join in with a range of ‘circus’ activities. He is infectiously encouraging and exceptionally skillful at creating such a positive atmosphere that everybody just wants to try and join in. Even I can now spin a plate!

Many of our students have gone on to buy their own circus equipment and continue to practice their skills long after Paul has left. Several have demonstrated these skills to him when he has returned the following year! As a school we continue to book him annually.

It was the finale to a themed week at school and we could not have wished for a more accommodating, professional, entertaining and appropriate person to interact with the entire age range of children from 3 to 13. There was a range of skills that were initially displayed and then taught to the children. These included juggling, diabolo and plate spinning.

On the following day, Kinetic Circus put on some fun and highly skilled shows at our Parents’ Summer Fair which were enjoyed by children and adults alike.

If you are looking for a fun, active, informative and stimulating experience then you couldn’t do much better than hire Paul.

Over the last two years the P.E. Department has enlisted Paul from Kinetic Circus help to run a circus skills workshop in school as part of our Year 7 Arts ‘Focus Day’. During the day all our Year 7 students are off timetable and engaged in learning about the circus through a series of physical and artistic workshops.

He is 100% reliable and takes the effort and time to work closely with staff in order to deliver a unique and appropriate workshop tailored to meet the needs and requirements of the pupils in our school. His rapport with the students is excellent, putting them at their ease whilst challenging each of them and his relationship with staff is very professional. We’ve had some excellent days with Paul and the pupils love him! I have no hesitation in recommending Kinetic Circus to you.

We have been fortunate to work with Paul for the past two years and he has run many successful workshops with students of all ages (13-18). He is an articulate communicator and I have always been impressed by his professionalism. Each time he comes to school there is a real buzz about the place.

It goes without saying that Paul is an amazing performer, but what is incredible is the way that he is able to encourage beginners to gain their confidence and also inspire the more advanced to push their skills and try new tricks. He has even weaved some maths into his juggling demonstrations, explaining sequences and patterns!
