Circus Arts Initiation Workshop

Circus Arts Initiation Workshop

We offer 3 different formulas to better meet your needs: open, directed and adapted

OPEN FORMULA

Ideal for multi-generational family events

Colorful, dynamic and festive: we bring a wide variety of circus equipment that participants can freely discover, guided by our experienced artists. It is always a real success and it promotes reconciliation between participants, all generations combined, in a family atmosphere.

We usually bring for these workshops: slackline, balance games, balls, rings, skittles, scarves, hoops, poï, diabolos, flower sticks, ribbons, etc …

On request and depending on the context: unicycles, acrobatics mat, balance roller

Ratio: 1 artist for 12 to 15 participants simultaneously maximum (approximately 50 to 80 participants / h / artist).

Technical requirements:

  • 1 table per artist
  • 1 clean and unobstructed space bounded by barriers or crowd ribbons
  • Minimum surface for a workshop with 2 artists: 20 ′ x 20 ′, ideally 30 ′ x 30 ′
  • 1 dynamic person to manage the queue and answer questions from the public (recommended but not mandatory).

Minimum 2 artists for public events. Minimum 3 hours of service on weekends and 2 hours on weekdays.

DIRECTED FORMULA

Ideal for groups of children such as day camps, schools, libraries, daycares, etc. – from 1 year.

During our workshops, the artists guide the children, in the form of guided games, to discover several different circus disciplines among: slackline, balance games, flower sticks, Chinese plates, juggling, hoops, etc. The service includes a presentation and a short circus demonstration by the artists if the time allows it.

Ratio: 1 artist for 12 to 15 children maximum for the 6 years or more, and 8 to 10 children maximum for the 1 to 5 years.

Organization: We recommend workshop periods between 45 minutes and 2 hours per group.

For large groups: In order to reduce costs for your organization, rather than meeting all the children at the same time with a large number of artists, we can meet them over several consecutive periods in small groups with a smaller volume of artists. Each artist meets a group, the others who wait their turn will be left in your care.

Example for a total of 90 children who have 6 years or more, on a morning: we divide them into 6 groups of 15 children who will be met by 2 artists:

  • groups 1 and 2 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.,
  • groups 3 and 4 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
  • groups 5 and 6 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Technical needs: A clean and unobstructed room per group (min. 10 ‘x 15’) indoors or outdoors if possible.

Minimum 2 hours of service during the week and 3 hours at the weekend

ADAPTED FORMULA

Designed to better meet people with special needs

Our adapted circus initiation workshops highlight the capacities of the participants rather than their disabilities. Our artists have a great sensitivity and know how to follow the rhythm and the needs of the participants.

We guide them individually so that everyone, actor or spectator, can have fun and learn something at the end of the workshop, all in a relaxed atmosphere. The circus is a great therapeutic, educational and social cohesion tool that has the strength to bring people together.

We bring a wide variety of circus equipment to be able to please and adapt to all (balance games, flower sticks, Chinese plates, juggling, scarves, balls, hoops, slackline etc …).

Ratio: 1 artist for 8 to 10 participants maximum + accompanying persons if necessary 

Artists can be costumed, dressed colorful or simply wear a Cirkazou sweater.

Technical requirements:

  • 1 table per artist
  • 1 clean and unobstructed space bounded by barriers or crowd ribbons
  • Minimum surface for a workshop with 1 artist: 10’x15 ‘minimum

Minimum 2 hours of service during the week and 3 hours at the weekend

Cirkazou, it’s great. I have been to their “initiation to the circus” twice and I am delighted. Always professional, the 2 “clowns” bring happiness to young and old. Very artistic make-up, comical balloons, juggling, and a lot of talent. Keep up girls, you are TERRIFIC! Cirkazou is synonymous with PLEASURE and LAUGHS
