Top Banana Circus Workshops

Supported by the Portsmouth Cultural Trust.

Circus skills are fun, physical and challenging, so join us for our circus workshops. Whether it’s juggling, diabolo, tightwire,clowning or performance, you’ll learn something new and have a great time doing it.

Circus skills can help improve a wide variety of physical abilities including balance, co-ordination, fine and gross motor control and physical fitness. They can also help develop concentration, perseverance, creativity and team-working, as well as improving confidence and self-esteem.

Sessions are led by our Top Banana Trainers and Circus Assistants, and include warm-up games, teaching with a wide variety of equipment, and performance development.
