Thomas Senior tries a new bounce routine

At Circus school on Wednesday evening Director Yuri suggested a new move to Thomas to add to his already great bounce juggling act. On his second attempt he had it set and only needs practise to be able to include the routine in his next performance.

Record attendance at Highfield Circus Club

Despite the heavy rain, Wednesday night Circus club at Highfield attracted a great number of members and new students. Although Roger Mireles was away on holiday, Jose Hermida was back after a period missing through poor health. Another welcome participant was “Slava” a Russian juggler who was in “Eclipse” at the Pleasure beach for a number of years. He brought his year 6 son Ilya who is making great progress as one of our students. Slava helped out with Acro for our beginners and members. Jamie-Lee took a group club passing workshops with 5 other students. The evening was rounded of again with Unicycle skipping with mixed results. See youtube video.

Highfield Circus Club Graduates

Following the introduction of the beginners class at Highfield humanities College last term, we have eight successful graduates to Circus club.  These will now be able to go on to learn all the other skills that we teach.  The skills include, Trapeze, Tightrope, Stilt walking and Unicycle.

Due to the success of these eight students, we now have places for more beginners in the Spring term commencing 11th.
