    Event description

    Dummies Corp offers a circus skills workshop to local communities whilst on tour.

    Each workshop can cater for up to 30 participants ages 6+ and lasts for an hour. Participants don't need any prior ability and will leave having learnt some of the moves they have seen in the show, creating a strong connection between the performance, the artists and their own experience. 

    Some outcomes we hope to achieve through our workshops are:

    • Skills and fitness development
    • Confidence and character building
    • Verbal and Non verbal communication 
    • Developing working as a team
    • Developing critical thinking

    The workshop, like the show, places great emphasis on creative play and self empowerment for participants to carry this imaginative embodied experience into their lives beyond the workshop. Once we achieve these outcomes once our company has left the participants can continue creation and play which encourages self sustaining creative communities.

    We aim to keep a safe and consistent trainer to participant ratio so each individual gets a specialized amount of attention. All our trainers are highly skilled, professional and passionate people. 

    Workshops are for people with little or no experience in circus arts.
    Workshops suitable for ages 6+
