It's all about wellbeing!
We all want the best for our children and students, and that’s why a focus on wellbeing is so important.
Here at Little Devils Circus our highest value is simple - to provide a Safe and Fun environment for all of our students.
With that in mind, let’s have a look at some of the benefits of circus classes in relation to student and child wellbeing.
Circus classes provide an amazing place to explore and grow skills, with new and existing friends, under the care and expertise of a trained circus coach. Although much of circus is individual skill-development, real magic occurs when students come together, teaching and learning from each other, and working on group acts.
We’ve already blogged about how juggling can improve neural pathways; however, that is just the tip of the iceberg. All circus skills challenge your mind to develop new ways of processing information, externally and internally, improving balance, co-ordination, and fitness.
As anyone who has learnt a circus skill will tell you, all of a sudden, something will click, and the trick will start to happen. Circus skills of all types help ingrain the importance of sticking to an action to achieve desired goals, and gives an amazing sense of satisfaction when a skill is mastered, leading onto new tricks!
It’s incredible how fast self-confidence can develop with new skills. A large part of what we do at Little Devils Circus is producing school concerts. As many parents and teachers who have worked with us will tell you, when the big night finally arrives all that hard work pays off! The children are so fantastic, and the responses so positive, that people who thought shyness may be an issue are blown away by their child’s confidence and ability on stage.
