"Hi Clive, I just wanted to thank you for entertaining us at our Awards. We have had some very positive feedback and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a shame the weather put a dampener on things and I trust that all your party made it home safely. Thank you very much and we hope to work together again in the future”

“ I really don't know where to start. We have had the most amazing day with James today for your circus day. James was absolutely fantastic from start to finish, he was just faultless. The children were engaged from the minute they sat down, right up until the end of the day when we came back together for our show. The way James engaged with the children was perfect, as well as his explanations of how to use the equipment being clear and concise. I have had 12 emails from parents this evening telling me how their children have come home today saying how much fun they had and how good the day was. We even had a comment of 'Today has been the best day ever, I just haven't stopped smiling!’ I really don't know what else to say other than I couldn't rate the company and James any more highly. I will definitely be booking you again in future and I will be sure to pass your information on to as many schools as I can! Thank you SO much for making 60 children, very happy today! “

" Please forgive me for my terribly delayed e-mail! Just wanted to say a huge thank you to John and Tom for our Circus day on 11/2/20 at Kearsley West Primary School. The children absolutely loved the day and It fit in so well with our circus themed wow week. Both John and Tom were so receptive with the children, and differentiated their activities and work shops so well depending on the children’s ages and interests. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for some circus performers! "

"Mr Sensible was fantastic. The children were captivated and found his show amazing and hilarious! His methods of teaching the basics of scarf juggling and feather balacing ensured that all children succeeded and were engaged. The variety of equipment he brought was vast and the children really enjoyed the opportuinity to try so many different skills. A brilliant morning - thank you! “

"I don't think I ever got around to thanking you for providing Jay to entertain us and our guests at our wedding last September. His mix of abilities was perfect for our day, and every one enjoyed his tricks and circus skills. I even managed to sneak away from the crowds for half an hour towards the end of his time and finally learnt some of the basics of contact juggling.And as a warning to other potential brides; my husband made himself a balloon hat and proceeded to wear it for the rest of the day, speeches and all. Be prepared for this eventuality! “

Brain Training

"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." In brief, learning a new skill such as Juggling can hard wire our brains to work better and faster! Circus skills 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.

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.
