CIRCUS ARTS LAB 6/10 e 11/13


with Elisa Consagra and Christian Prestia

The workshop is for children aged 6 to 10  who want to experience the circus disciplines improving their quality psycho-motor through the game. This creative and fun work embraces many aspects. The children are able to experience their own body through games that teach specific skills and at the same time they can discover the expressive dimension. Every time a child throws an object into the air and take it back before it touches the ground is having to deal with coordination, balance, motor skills and imagination of dissociation.

The course includes basic techniques of juggling, acrobatics and clowning and stimulate concentration, communication, listening and cooperation. These skills will be developed in a non-competitive way with exercises designed to promote team spirit.

Timetable: thursday 17.00 – 18.30
