Circus in Schools

Circus provides a one-of-a-kind experience to engage students and enhance their learning.

Circus arts can be integrated into the school curriculum in several effective ways. For example, circus skills learning can be weaved into PE, dance and drama classes. Circus can also be linked into other subjects such as science, for example by examining the physics of circus techniques.

Galway Community Circus has provided circus programmes for schools since 2002. Our school programmes vary from one-off taster workshops to ten-week circus arts education programmes designed to work effectively within the school curriculum and to suit a variety of ages and abilities.

Through our circus residencies, Galway Community Circus delivers a 100% memorable educational experience for students, teachers, parents and the wider community. Our projects provide a full immersion experience and bring a dynamic, engaging, creative programme to schools.
