Our Circus Equipment

Here's just some of our circus equipment...

The Diabolo

This ancient art is 5000 yrs old and is the second oldest juggling prop known to mankind. Using 2 sticks, one is held still while the other is moved up and down. Diabolo spins and works by gyro effect.

Plate Spinning

Plate spinning involves resting a specially made plate with a foot or lip (not a dinner plate!!) onto a stick and gradually working it round. Once used to that, speed up until the plate becomes level and then stop the stick - Hey Presto!!

The Unicycle

We only have one wheel? We teach this in 13 steps, very simply and safely. First stages are just to balance, then only pedal in ¼ turns, all assisted.

The Tight Wire

This involves great concentration and balance but with assistance is really easy. Holding your hands up very high and stopping on one foot to balance is the key.

The 4 Wheel Pedal

Fun for all, these Pedal Go's are tricky at first but great fun once mastered in minutes.

The Poi

Poi spinning, this aincient Maori art has turned from exercise for battle to easy dance and showmanship. These are great for special awareness and motor skills development.

With a huge and varied collection of equipment I can teach up to 40 people at once with each prop structured, or up to 100 people for Drop-In.
