Preschools and Nurseries
For younger groups (3+ years) packages typically include a juggling show, balloon animals, party games, and a mini circus workshop which is a great way of learning new balance and hand-eye coordination skills. These workshops give children the opportunity to practise stilt walking, juggling with scarves and bean bags, spinning rings and plates, riding ‘pedal go’s, and performing tricks with gymnast ribbons, flower sticks, and poi.
Entertainment packages are venue specific and can be tailored to link in with the children’s learning or with a special occasion such as Christmas or graduation from preschool. Please contact Jimmy for a quotation.
Schools, Libraries, Other Educational Services
Jimmy is able to offer themed circus workshop sessions and/or shows which link in with the children’s learning. Under his instruction, children can try circus skills from all over the world; these include diabolo, flower stick, spinning plate, poi, hula-hoop, and juggling, along with balance skills such as stilt walking, pedal wheels, and even unicycle. Circus skills are not only great fun and a learning opportunity; they are also a great way of improving your balance, coordination, and accuracy.
Workshop sessions can be timetabled to fit in around other school classes and activities and could be for a single class or year group or for the entire school. The circus workshop sessions can also include a juggling show and some fire juggling (outdoors only). Please contact Jimmy for a quotation.
Jimmy is also able to adapt his show and workshop for churches and youth groups.
