Circus Skills Workshops


Phillippe - Philloppe


Circus workshops or Juggling workshops as they are often known as are both educational and fun. Suited to many different types of events from playschemes for children to company events in the form of team building exercises for adults, or just for fun!

A circus workshop can be run in or outside and can be for large or small groups. Circus workshops can be arranged from one hour long to multiple days tuition. Phillippe - Philloppe can teach people with little or no experience, to advanced jugglers wanting to enhance their skills.

Circus workshops can be organised in a way that is best suited to your event. For example, a school or corporate event may wish to have a structured circus skills workshop spending allocated time working on particular circus skills and swapping around spending say 30 minutes on each skill. A festival or fete would usually opt for something far less structured and and would rather we ran a drop in style circus skills workshop where people come and go as they please trying what they want, when they want. Drop in workshops are a good attraction for these kind of events and are always very popular. For drop in workshops we always mark an area out with stakes and rope or bunting, this keeps the circus skills workshop contained in one area for safety and to stop equipment being spread from here to eternity!

What ever your event, we can adapt what we do to fit you needs.

Circus skills taught include:

Ball Juggling, Scarve Juggling, Ring Juggling, Club Juggling, Diabolo, Devil Sticks, Plate Spining, Object Balancing, Tight Rope/Low Wire, Rola Bola, Unicycling, Stilt Walking, Hula Hoop, Hat Manipulation, Giant Bubble Making, Pedal-Go.

Examples of a circus workshop:

1: Two hours total, split into four half hour sessions of four different skills, for example ball juggling, diabolo, plate spinning and tight rope. This is very popular with corporate customers wishing to hold a team building event. More details can be given about our team building exercises on request.

2: The same as above but with an extra session on the end to include more skills and the chance for participants to have a go at what they wish.

3: Drop in style. Have a go at the lot, as and when you please.

4: Multiple day courses. These tend to be more structured and could end in a performance performed by you!

5: Bespoke circus workshops. You have an idea and we work with it.

For circus workshops in an organised/controlled environment (not drop in festival style) we always give a detailed and fun demonstration of all the skills being taught as well as on going tuition throughout the session.


Your event could be complemented by having a juggling show or even some stilt walkers. We can supply it all. If your event is a biggie we could supply more circus skills instructors or performers.
