The Circus Skills we teach
They move so slowly they are a great way for young children to learn to catch and older to learn the juggling pattern.
Slow and floaty for movement and creativity.
One of our favourite challenges is the feather balance. On one finger, the hand, back of the arm and eventually on the nose, chin or head.
Attention, imagination, determination.
Juggling is the perfect model for explaining how the learning process works. Focusing on letting the ball drop we help the pupils relax and learn the gentle movement required for success.
Juggling is the perfect learning model.
