Circus Workshops for Schools

Suitable for Early Years, Independent, Primary, Secondary & 6th Form.

Whether you would like all the children in the school to experience an introduction to circus skills or you would prefer to give more time for older children to learn and develop their talents, TK Arts can provide you with a creative, educational and fun-filled experience.

The main objective of our circus skills workshops for schools, is to have fun and to learn and develop some new and existing skills. Group work will feature strongly, including the building of trust, teamwork and skill-sharing.
Children with concentration and/or behavioural difficulties often co-operate well in this novel situation and focus for longer periods. Few children will have had the opportunity to build circus skills, so they will all start at the same point, discovering their own strengths and limitations in this area.
Although Tom will lead the workshops himself and he’s experienced and skilled in teaching large groups, the more staff who are able to assist and encourage the children, the better the learning experience for all.
Children will explore their learning styles (auditory, kinaesthetic and visual) and work together to perform a small demo/sketch to be performed at the end of the workshop.
The performance of circus skills can give a tremendous sense of achievement and confidence. Children quickly learn to perform skills neither they nor their audience would have thought possible.

We work indoors & outdoors

Circus Workshops require a large indoor space, preferably a gymnasium or hall. Classrooms are okay for all skills except the diabolo, as this needs more height. Workshops can be held outside on grassed areas (not concrete), though some circus skills are more difficult to learn in windy weather.

If you let us know how many classes you have and the number of children in each class, along with your day’s times (start, break, lunch, end of day), we will devise a structured programme of learning for your Senior Leadership Team.
