Circus Summer Workshops

Circus Summer Workshops 

 

What are they?

These workshops are open to people, aged 18 and over, with experience in circus arts who would like an opportunity to further develop their skills.

In addition to improving their abilities in basic circus arts disciplines (i.e. floor acrobatics, trampoline, handstands, flexibility and conditioning), participants in these two weeks long workshops can choose to improve a specific circus discipline they already practice or use this opportunity to try out a new discipline.

Moreover, all participants will have the chance to take part in group workshops (ex. dance, theatre acting, etc.) among the circus field.
