Something about Circus which is different from a lot of other youth activities is there’s a real sense of celebration.
- Donal Kendry, co-founder, Belfast Community Circus
The team at Buskerz Juggling takes fun and celebrates life seriously. And what could be more fun and creative than learning circus skills? Everyone can do it!
In fact, the wondrous benefits of circus in education and in life have made us firm believers in the power of Circus for life.
In the words of Kevin O’Keefe , creator of the Circus Kids Create:
“We teach self-esteem, discipline, creativity, self-expression, community, teamwork and problem solving while using the circus as a metaphor for life. We don’t teach juggling. We teach people to be patient with themselves while they learn to juggle.”
Circus Alive! is a school circus arts programme
presented by Buskerz Juggling. This programme is suitable for schools that wish to expand their arts and physical education provision, for active learning through the arts, co-curricular activities and enrichment workshops for all primary and secondary schools and special schools.
