Circus Skills

“The Circus Day – wow!!! What a wonderful day from start to finish…the girls left me behind in the world of the mundane and celebrated the next few hours surrounded by enchantment, excitement and magic… Would I send them again? Try and stop me – try and stop THEM!!”

Helen, Brighton.


CHILDREN’S CIRCUS SKILLS…a fun packed day full of drama, games, circus skills and improvisations, culminating in a mini performance for parents and carers.

We only take around 20 children, so as to create a ‘family atmosphere’ and to give the children the individual attention needed to nurture confidence, self-esteem, creativity and skills.

After an initial welcome and a few get-to-know-each-other games, the children split into smaller (similar aged) groups in order to learn various Circus Skills and to create and develop improvisations.They can try hula hooping, juggling, diabalo, poi, spinning plates, face-painting, balloon modelling and clowning.


Workshops are run by myself and Abby Hills. I am a fully qualified and experienced primary school teacher and actress with EQUITY membership. Abby is an EQUITY Circus performer who runs Circus Skills workshops in schools and festivals and has her very own Circus Toy Shop, Pelotas Productions, at the Open Market.
