What an incredibly fun time we had at the National Centre for Circus Arts this morning.
Our tour of the beautiful building (once a fire station) led us to a room with a red bouncy floor! After some bouncing around, the circus arts teacher showed us how to use spinning plates, juggling balls, and some throwing, catching and balancing games with colourful scarves and peacock feathers. Everybody had a really good go at the different circus skills.
Before heading back to school we were lucky enough to get to see many different performers mid morning practice routines. It was fascinating; we could have watched them all day. Hugely popular with everyone were the guys on the cloud swing and trapeze! Such an inspiring & fun morning.
