Cluny Square gets juggling!

Southend Campus

Circus skills workshops

Free Circus skills workshops for young people took place at Priory Park bandstand, Southend run by the University of Essex and Connexions Youth Service.

The sessions led by graduates from the East 15 Acting School in Southend were held on Thursday evenings on a drop in and try basis.

Circus skills workshops involve specific training based on a prop of participant’s choices, lasting for two hours between 6:30pm to 8:30pm. This has enabled the young people to train in many different techniques such as: Juggling (with balls, scarfs, rings, clubs and even binbags!), Poi spinning, Diablo and Devil sticks.

The workshops continue at Cluny Square on Thursdays, 4pm – 7pm, until 29 July. Just turn up and join in!
