Circus Performing Arts

Sense have partnered with the Hangar Arts Trust to hold a taster session at their base in Woolwich.

“Hangar Arts Trust is registered charity that supports the Arts and Circus sectors by providing access to affordable space for practice, creation and rehearsal.”

This is a 2 hour session that will include whats detailed below:

Bungee – A fun aerial activity where participants will be secured into a harness and enjoy the thrill of being lifted into the air, perhaps attempting a few somersaults whilst on the move!!

Silks – An aerial skill where silks are used around the body to wrap, suspend, fall, swing and spiral you into various positions. Aerial Silks can be used in many ways, for beginners initially acting as a cocoon enveloping the body to form a fabulous swing.

Hula Hooping – a great fun way to keep fit, get to feel the rhythm of the hoop and concentrate on trying to keep it from falling!!

Participants can come along and try whatever skills they feel comfortable with, the above selection should include something for everybody from the thrill seeking and daring to those just wanting a taste of something different!!

The important details!!!

Who: Anyone with a sensory impairment over 14 years old (individuals under 18 will have to have a guardian sign a permission form)

What:  Circus Performing Arts

Why: To encourage individuals with sensory impairments to be active and to try new opportunities out of their comfort zone!

When: Saturday 22nd July,  Time: 11-1pm (aim to arrive 20mins early for set up, toilet etc so you can make the most of the session)

Where:  Unit 7A, Mellish House, Harrington Way, SE18 5NR

As with all free funded sessions we need to capture some information to justify the expense to our funders and to support research for future opportunities. Anyone wishing to attend will need to complete a registration form which I will send out to you once you contact me to express your interest. There will also be a customer care medical form from the Hangar Arts Trust that needs to be completed. We know paper work is a pain but it’s for everyone’s benefit in the long run.

Limited Spaces!!
We do have a limited number of spaces available for this taster session and a few are already gone so it will be on a first come first served basis. Don’t worry if you don’t get in though, because if we get enough interest I will look to hold another session later in the year.

Additional Information:

We endeavour to make our sessions as inclusive as possible, but regret we are unable to provide BSL or other language interpreters, therefore advise you to ensure you have support available to attend your chosen sessions if needed.

Guide Dogs:

Assistance dogs are welcome at any of our sessions, however coaches and staff do not have provision to supervise dogs, therefore they may be left unsupervised to the side of the session. A suggestion is to bring along toys and/or food to help prevent boredom. If you have any queries or concerns, regarding this please contact us further.

I hope you’re as excited about these sessions as I am.
