Circle of Two have extensive experience in leading circus workshops for both adults and children. The skills taught are excellent tools for team building, as they help participants to overcome obstacles, to push their limits, to build trust and to gain understanding of their own bodies.
Circle of Two have toured with different circus companies around Europe, such as Le Cirque Educatif in France or Circus Harlekin in Switzerland, participating in several educational programmes for schools where the children were able to use the skills learnt and successfully put on a show at the end of the programme.
The company currently gives regular classes to home-educated children and to the local scouts club.
Circle of Two have their own self-standing aerial structure and intensive workshops are available on request for any event.

"Ralph and Celia have run many sessions for our young people, age ranges from 6-18. The sessions were tailored to our requirements and the capabilities of the young people involved, including some with learning difficulties.
They all had a great time and learned balance, juggling, trapeze work and a range of circus skills. We were even able to present a show for all the parents. "
Penny Lympany, Cubs Scout Leader
"My daughter has been attending Ralph & Celia's Circus Skills classes for two years and thoroughly enjoys them. During this time, I have watched her confidence and ability grow. Not only has she learnt balance, flexibility and awareness of her own body, she has also learnt about team work, cooperation and communication skills - all of which are important life skills to learn.
