Galway Community Circus’ online Youth Circus programme

What a year!

With ever-changing restrictions coming into play while we all find a way to live through this pandemic, we at Galway
Community Circus, want to assure our membership that whatever is thrown our way, we are going to stay connected and find a way to deliver high quality circus in a meaningful, fun and engaging way.

Circus Connects is Galway Community Circus’ new online programme and we are truly excited about the new opportunities that this platform is opening up to our membership.

We of course cannot wait to have you back in the circus hall again, but with this new world we are in, we do need to respond appropriately to ensure the continued growth, support and connection within our membership that makes Circus so special.

What does Circus Connect offer?

THere are different offerings for each age-group that will explore everyone’s interests that will build toward a fun and inclusive outcome.

Younger age groups will get a chance to take part in a weekly online class full of games and fun activities as well as weekly bespoke circus challenges sent via e-mail. Older age groups get a chance to attend 2-3 weekly online classes focusing on circus techniques, creativity and social connections.

Each age group will also get a chance to take part in a video art project that will be created during this Circus Connects term which will come to a close with a group online watch-party. We will also launch a Circus Equipment Library for our Youth Circus membership in the coming weeks.

How to connect?

We will be connecting online via zoom and with weekly challenges sent via email. Every Monday our Youth Circus members will receive all the information needed via mail and we will follow up with a text just to make sure you get all the information needed to participate in your classes.

Impact and Outcome

We have focused on connection, social interaction, the continued development of skills, physical fitness and fun within these weekly challenges and classes. It’s so important to retain our connections and remember that, even as we are kept apart for each other’s safety, we remain together. Galway Community Circus will continue to research, learn and develop our online programme so that it too is a vital and enjoyable part of the annual Youth and Social Circus programme.
