Circus Workshops
For 8 – 15 year olds
A wonderful opportunity for novices and those with experience, to enjoy the thrill and excitement of the big top in a safe, fun, learning environment.
This is a challenging physical course that focuses on the techniques used by circus performers on the ground and in the air. You will experience the thrill of practicing new skills on a suspended circus rig including static trapeze (single and double  trapeze that do not swing), lyra (hanging hoop) and aerial silks (hanging stretch fabric).
The workshops cover a wide range of circus arts. In the 5 day week one course students will also have the opportunity to learn juggling. The 3 day workshop in the 2nd week will have a stronger aerial skills focus.  This is a great confidence builder with coaches who are committed to helping each student reach their fullest potential.

This workshop is for youth who want to gain some specific film acting skills and auditioning techniques from an industry professional.
Over the 2 days of the workshop we will be focusing on TV commercial audition technique as well as general screen technique.

Day One: you will be discovering how to present yourself on camera, how to read an audition script and how you can maximise your potential at an audition.
Day Two: we will focus on general screen technique and work with tv/ film scripts.

On both days of the workshop we will be filming your work and then playing it back so you can see what’s working for you and what you need to work on.   This will be a practical and  enjoyable workshop where you will learn the basics of screen acting technique… So come along ready to focus, take some risks and HAVE FUN!
