Schools & Community
Innovative and accessible circus workshops from Pre-school to University levels. We deliver programs scaled to your needs, anything from one off workshops to term long programs either at our customised studio in Preston or at your own venue.
- First Class Circus
Our most popular practical workshop. This is the ideal solution if you are looking for a highly engaging and individualised workshop that will provide new experiences, exciting challenges and fun. Activities include: Aerials, (e.g. trapeze, cloudswing, ropes), Manipulation (e.g. juggling, diablo, hoops, plate balancing), Balance activites (e.g. pyramids, double balance, rolla bolla), and Tumbling (e.g. rolls, mini tramp)
- Juggling and Clowning around
A great solution to including more people without extra cost, these workshops work really well for larger numbers or as a fun activity to boost your existing program. Whether you’re learning the secrets of laughter with our ‘Clown Around’ workshops or keeping your eye on the ball at ‘Juggling Prac’, both workshops explore the kinds of circus skills that are less focused on death defying acts and more on precision and performance.
- Make it, Use it, Keep it
Love circus? Learn to make your own circus equipment! Participants learn to make and use circus equipment like hula hoops, juggling balls, juggling sticks or poi. This is a fantastic way to multiply the positive outcomes of your workshop. Westside Circus provides all materials, and you get to take your new equipment home!
- Performance Making
Give your students the chance to show off their new skills! Westside Circus can work with your participants to put together a show for your next event, assembly or special occasion. * A minimum of 8 workshops is required in order to learn the skills and rehearse the show.
