Description

If you were running away to join a circus, what would you need to pack in your suitcase? Find out how to turn your home into the big top and learn how to use basic objects around the house to create fun and impressive circus tricks.

I will help you to create simple circus props, including juggling balls, poi, and some easy to learn tricks of balancing props. Juggling and ground-based circus are great for coordination, mental agility, and mindfulness while being extremely enjoyable. These sessions are suitable for any age and ability and once you have grasped the basic principles, you can continue your practice at home.
