Dublin Circus Project runs a variety of youth circus training programmes for those aged 4 to 18 years old, from playschool right up through secondary school. We also work with community groups, home schools, summer schools, and anyone wanting to bring circus to the lives of young people.
The benefits of circus skills in the development of youth are broad ranging and long lasting.
Benefits include increased hand-eye coordination, balance, body and spatial awareness, increased focus and attention, and creative expression, all within a non-competitive atmosphere.
When creating a programme for your group we are very flexible and can work with you to tailor it to your requirements. We can do anything from once-off workshops to multiple week terms to year long programmes so as to bring the best experience to your group.
We have previously worked with playschools, transition year secondary schools, English language summer schools, homeschools and summer schools.
Class durations can be anywhere from between 30 minutes to hours long.
Dublin Circus Project offers a carefully crafted Transition Year Unit: “The Greatest Show in School“.
Over the course of the unit, the students will discover and learn about the Circus Arts and skills, improve their physical condition and acquire and develop specific social skills. Each class will have a social objective (such as resilience, teamwork or celebrating diversity) and a skill objective (such as hula hoop, juggling or stilt walking).
