Circus Skills

Peter Duncan is an experienced trainer in circus skills and has offered to start a group in Sandbach U3A. He would start with skills such as:

  • Juggling – how to play with and juggle scarves, balls, rings, clubs
  • Balancing objects – starting with feathers moving on to more challenging objects
  • Manipulation – things like cigar boxes, diabolos, flower sticks

If the group wanted to he could move to stilt walking, counterbalance and human pyramid. Reply to this message or contact any committee member to register your interest.
