When he was 15 James did work experience in a Circus Shop and since then he was hooked!
As well as an accomplished performer he now runs Circus Workshops at schools and events around the country.
He also trains performers in Circus Skills for Theatre or Film productions.
These are a great addition to any event or School day.
The workshop can be a relaxed drop in style which is perfect for events.
For Schools James starts the day with a 30 min show and then runs structured age appropriate lessons in groups which can run from 30mins to 90mins.
Prices start at £250.00 plus travel
and both styles of workshop include:
FLOWER / DEVIL STICK
James is often hired to teach Circus skills, often fire effects to professionals.
This could be for a stage production or for a Film that requires an actor to perform a certain skill.
If there is a skill you need to learn give James a call... and if its something he doesn't know he is bound to know someone who does!
Have a look at the following case studies to see recent examples of Circus Training in action.
