A new school of exciting fun
A fantastic new circus school is opening in St. Peters for anyone between the ages of 6 and 26. As the creators explain, the aim is to provide "an integrative and fun learning environment that caters for people from all walks of life including those with physical or intellectual disabilities".
The logo for the Circus school has layers of hidden meaning - to begin with it represents many different shapes, sizes and flavours of poeple coming together.
Classes will begin on Wednesdays at the beginning of term 4, 2013. The first two classes held on the 16th and 23rd of October will be free. This is a great chance to get involved and give circus a try.
Juggling is a skill that takes time to master, and there is always another ball to throw in to make it more tricky if you need...
The Lolly Jar Circus is a not-for-profit organisation run by many individuals passionate about having a ball and teaching the fantastic life skills that circus can offer from improving gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, strength, flexibility, how to work as a team, and setting goals and reaching them. Besides which, who doesn't want to know how to juggle?
The hall at St Peters is filled with natural light during the day and is very accessible in St Peters.
Only 10 mins out of the city, its prime location, broad audience and low costs are sure to make this a very popular school. Basic circus skills include juggling, poi, plate spinning, tumbling, tube, rola bola, balancing, human pyramids, learning how be a clown and much more. Later skills involve slapstick, acrobatics, stilt walking, unicycling, and putting everything together into a performance.
Circus brings together many skills into a colourful, varied display of entertainment.
It is fabulous that the Lolly Jar supports people with disabilities and abilities equally. Circus truly is a funtastic activity, and cannot be recommended highly enough. If you are curious, enquire to email@example.com.
