Circus workshop for the Highfield Humanities community day featured a number of our students taking to the outside stage to demonstrate their Circus skills. The photo above shows Martyn Hawkins 12, Jamie-Lee Coldham 20 and James Wade 20 rehearsing for their part in the demonstration. Other participants were Thomas Senior, Danial Tate-Pots and Max Salthouse. These outdoor events give the students a wonderful opportunity to practise their Circus skills and work together on new routines. They can also be very competative, see the video on youtube.
Three of our Circus students took part in a series of Talent contests at the Pleasure beach Globe and Horeshoe bar. All three made the finals for under 16 and over 16s. For the under 16s Thomas Senior took second place with his ball bouncing routine and Danial Tate-Pots was joint 4thwith his Poi routine. A very creditable effort considering the standard of Singers that came 1st 3rd and joint 4th. There was only one place in the over 16s final and James Wade’s juggling act did not win but he impressed with his skills and unusual style of performance. All three can be seen in the following youtube videos and also live at the North Pier, Blackpool on the 24th October in “All hands on deck” a Charity show produced by Tony Jo the ex Grumbleweed and manager of Joe Longthorne.
