Circus Summer Camp
Everybody is welcome!
We invite you to our circus camp for children ages 7-15. The goal of our camp is to help children master circus skills, stimulate their imagination, body and focus, encourage their creativity and feel free to experiment and express themselves!
From the 12th to 17th of July
Cirkoneo Summer Camp on Katai farm
The Cirkoneo circus school invites you to spend some quality time playing, having fun and learning circus skills with us on Katai farm from the 12th to 17th of July 2021.
The goal of our camp is to help children master circus skills, stimulate their imagination, body and focus, encourage their creativity and feel free to experiment and express themselves!
– During our workshops of circus skills, the children will be getting to know all of the different circus props and practice circus techniques (juggling, balancing, acrobatics, aerial acrobatics)
-During the entertaining and educational evening programmes, the children will get to wind down and relax after a full day of different activities: bonfire gatherings, watching educational films, quizzes, board games, theme parties etc.
Balance yourself – through circus to balance
This project would take place from September 2021 to the 22nd of April 2022, and it is part of the European Capital of Culture programme, which would co-finance this project as well. The project would focus on children aged 7-15 and promote circus arts and skills as activities that have a wide impact on their creativity, concentration, communicativeness, critical thinking and last but not least their health and physical state.
Aside from acrobatics and juggling, the accent will be on balance and the variety of skills which include balance as a branch of circus that we will use most in our work with children.
Our research will mainly be towards mapping public spaces as suitable for safe and responsible performance of the circus disciplines that we promote. Public spaces should be marked appropriately with strict rules on how to safely and correctly use all the equipment, and in doing so, preserving the surrounding nature and its monuments (city parks – Limanski park, Futoški park, Kamenički park and the public beach Štrand).
Taking part in this project will be a team of psychologists who will conduct research on the positive effects of circus balance on children as well as a team of public health specialists who will organize conversations with parents and teachers. We will have additional classes with them as well, in an attempt to educate the educators.
The role of the mentor will be given to the circus school from Timisoara and its educators who have graduated in circus pedagogy and worked in the circus school in Brussels.
The idea is to include city schools (one of them would be the special needs school “dr Milan Petrović”), a few schools from the suburbs and 021 county (approximately 10 schools). Our goal is to gather around 500 participants, and with cooperation from the different schools teachers, pick out about 15 children with whom we would do intensive work until April of 2022. Then we would put on a final performance within the European Capital of Culture programme.
One of the results of this project will be an illustrated brochure detailing the importance and welfare of circus, along with a map of public places. Another goal will be to hold a conference where the idea that the modern-day circus becomes a part of our educational system would be put forward.
