Choose a workshop today and we promise to have as much fun as the kids!
All classes will be fun and energetic and provided by a professional workshop leader.
Our mission is to improve a child’s reflexes, their agility, flexibility, peripheral vision, hand-eye coordination and problem-solving skills while having fun. All workshops and equipment used will sharpen their focus and concentration while stimulating all aspects of the body and mind.
Depending on what workshop you choose will depend on what equipment is used. Below is a few examples of what will be used in a workshop.
Baton Twirling Sticks
A stick used for dancing or defence. There is no country of origin who founded the baton or stick but it has been used widely by people from all around the world for centuries. With performance art, the stick is spun around the body in various ways.
Tethered weights at the end of string, rope or chains. Poi originates from the Maori People of New Zealand and was used by women to entertain and tell stories and used by men for wrist flexibility and strength training for using hand weapons. With performance art, poi involves swinging the tethered weights through a variety of rhythmical and geometric patterns. The weights can be lit with fire for effect.
An act of manipulation of props (in our case balls). A juggling pattern is a sequence of throws and catches repeated continuously. During the workshop, the children will start with one juggling ball and build up to two juggling balls and then onto then balls when the rhythm has been mastered. Juggling dates back many years from many different cultures worldwide. There has been an increase in the study about the benefits of juggling and the article explaining it can be read here.
Martial Arts – Kung Fu and Tai Chi
An ancient Chinese martial art. There are many styles of Kung Fu and Tai Chi which involve internal and external training. During the workshop, children will be focussing on Kung Fu style warm-up and stretching exercises, body alignment, self-defence and breathing relaxation.
All equipment is provided for each workshop and each workshop can be adapted to suit any requirements needed.
