Holiday Program @ NICA
In addition to term-based circus classes NICA offers a wide variety of circus training each day over one week four times each year for children, teenagers and adults.
Children spend the morning with fun whole-class activities to develop fitness and then move to similar skill-based groups. Skills include trapeze, tightwire, juggling, hula hoops, acrobalance and more.
Choose from Holiday NICAmites (5-7yrs) and Holiday NICAdets (7-12yrs) morning classes for one day or all five days. On selected days children can also experience a Day at the Circus, a fun and very popular all day package of circus workshops followed by fun circus activities ideal for 5-12 year olds.
Teens take over in the afternoon. Beginners, you will have the chance to try things you never thought possible. If you have more experience you will benefit from trainers providing customised feedback on technique and learn fantastic new skills. Classes have included Flying Trapeze and Tissu.
Each school holidays NICA also offers a special event. This could be a matinee performance, an interactive magic workshop or concert. To be able to offer a wide range of skills the Day at the Circus activities change every holidays so visit the website or click here to subscribe to the monthly eNews.
