A Circus Workshop in a school in Coventry with Circus Sensible
"Just wanted you to know what an amazing day both children and adults had on Wednesday.
The children came back to class animated and there was a definite buzz about circuses, from both boys and girls.  The peacock feathers are definitely a hit.  The adults enjoyed the difference of the activity and the obvious exhilaration the children experienced."

A Circus workshop in a school with our Circus tent
Recent Scientific research has shown the value of Circus Skills and other physical skills in an educational environment. It has been recognised that the core skills which are utilised and developed when we learn and practice a challenging and creative activity such as Circus skills, can then be carried over into the more academic areas of education.

"Complex tasks such as juggling produce significant changes to the structure of the brain, according to scientists at Oxford University.
In the journal, Nature Neuroscience, the scientists say they saw a 5% increase in white matter - the cabling network of the brain."
BBC News

Activities such as Circus skills have been used with great success as an educational tool, as an aid to learning as well as therapeutically with children at risk and with children with special needs. Autistic children have been observed to respond particularly well to Circus skills in schools.

Circus skills are an opportunity for children and adults to discover and develop skills such as Concentration, Information retention, Concept visualisation, hand eye co-ordination and self awareness. These skills can then be used in many other settings including social situations and in conventional educational settings whilst learning the core subjects.
Circus Sensible have worked in Schools & at Events in Edinburgh and all over the UK, as well as community groups, charities and festivals for over 25 years, during which time we have been lucky enough to develop close working relationships with some of the very best tutors and performers in the industry. As a result we have a highly experienced team, who bring a wealth of cultural, performance and social experience to every aspect of engaging with young people, and teaching them core skills in a safe and encouraging, and above all, fun environment. We can teach not just Circus skills, but we also run Percussion workshops, Dance workshops, Arts and Caricature workshops and lots more Schools workshops in a variety of skills.
All our workshops, Big Top days and Activity Days are available in Edinburgh and all over the UK.

Our Circus tents are also available for hire, and we can provide many other types of workshops for schools including Drum workshops, Dance workshops and Art workshops.

Circus skills workshops in schools offer a huge range of benefits to children and adults of all ages and abilities. Often a Circus workshop in school is the only chance a child will have to have a go at these skills.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of having a go at Circus skills is that almost anyone can achieve so much in such a short time, giving the participant a great sense of achievement and immediate positive feedback from those around them. This leads to a more positive self image and an increase in self confidence in many children. Many of our circus skills workshops also include time for the participants to demonstrate the circus skills they have been learning.
Circus skills also help develop and improve concentration skills. This is particularly evident in those children with shorter attention spans. When we run Circus skills workshops in schools the teachers are often amazed that one or more children who usually have a problem concentrating are doing better than anyone else in the class!
Learning Circus skills also offers great benefits in terms of physical co-ordination and physical fitness. Circus workshops fit very well into the school curriculum under PE and co-ordination development. In fact there are many areas where Circus workshops offer great opportunities for curriculum enrichment.
These are just some of the benefits to be gained from Circus skills workshops. We encourage all these and more whilst always remembering..... CIRCUS SKILLS ARE FUN!

Circus Sensible have been teaching and performing circus skills workshops in schools and at all sorts of venues in Edinburgh and the rest of Scotland for over 25 years. We have a huge amount of experience in working with many different groups of all ages and abilities.

'This is the second event recently and you did a great job (we will send you copies of the evaluations)
Kyle & Obby were particularly good and really engaged with the children and the parents, everyone has made comments of how funny they were and the children were kept captivated.
the show they put on at the end kept everyone focused especially the children (this is some achievement as some of the children have attention deficit disorder).
Could not say enough about these guys really entertaining and would definitely use again' - Christine Ward, Brockington College Enderby, Leicester

Our Circus Sensible day was wonderful. The children were totally engaged in all the activities. The staff had fun too, two of us learning to hoopla hoop at fifty plus! We have used the day to inspire storytelling based on a circus theme and many of the activities we did have been mentioned in the stories. It was a truly memorable day. Keep up the good work! - School, Leicester
