Circus Skills, with Peter Duncan – Circus Trainer
Don’t run away with the circus! Peter will offer you the chance to learn circus skills in the comfort of your own home. You will be led through a series of achievable steps for balancing objects and juggling, followed by a chance to make your own circus props ready for ‘The Greatest Show On Earth’. No previous experience necessary.
We start with an introductory workshop including basic skills and fun warm up games, followed by four easy-to-follow workshops throughout the week to help you practice and develop your skills. One week later you are all invited to show off your new talents at a live showcase session. Roll up, roll up!
Storymaking, with Sharon Ginnis – Educator & Writing Tutor
Enter a world of imagination with Sharon and spend a week building your own story, step by step, ready to tell or perform in a live sharing session at the end of the week (or just keep to yourself!). You will be shown ways of creating settings and characters and given ideas for how to make your story exciting and ‘tell-able’. Sharon will take you through a step by step process that helps to shape a story and then, once you have the basic plot for your tale, she will give you creative activities to flesh-out the details and make your story zing!
We start with an Introductory Session, followed by four short workshops throughout the week to give you additional practical activities to enhance your storymaking skills.
