Youth Circus Workshops

If your youngster has lots of energy and a head for heights then why not let them try their hand at aerial circus? Our two Youth Circus groups are made up of a fantastic group of young people from many different backgrounds and with a range of abilities in various circus skills. The group has been in existence since 2006 and since that time has created exciting performances, films and exhibitions. The ethos for our Youth Circus group is intertwined with our mission to give a voice to disenfranchised groups and challenge stereotypes. BandBazi Youth does this by engaging in high quality arts and performance projects and workshops with respected arts professionals in the fields of aerial circus, circus theatre and performance.

We provide Youth Circus workshops for two age groups - Juniors (6-10 year olds) and Seniors (11-16 year olds) - on Saturday afternoons throughout term time. We follow the Brighton and Hove school term calendar as closely as possible.

Workshops consist of a warm-up with drama games, skills development in both aerial and ground based circus as well as performance work. We occasionally get specialist practitioners in to teach various performance skills and arts. 

Workshop leaders have full DBS checks.
