For ages 5 and under with a parent/ guardian.
Join Déa Neile-Hopton from Ridikulus Experiment for an exciting class during which child and carer work together with a variety of different circus equipment: juggling with scarves, balls and clubs, hula hoops and more!
Please arrive promptly for a fun warm up to music. During the session we’ll explore different circus equipment, moving together, balancing, throwing, catching, rolling, making different shapes with our bodies and the beginnings of aerial skills. Parent/guardian involvement is required in this class. While the emphasis will be on the child’s experience, there will be opportunities for the adults to try out the skills with their child. Session ends with a group cool down. If possible, please bring a yoga mat with you.
Please come wearing suitable clothing, e.g. leggings and close fitting t-shirt, leotard or other tight fitting training clothes, plus some layers to put on to keep warm.

About Déa Neile-Hopton
Déa has enjoyed the world of Circus since her childhood. She was inspired by the contortionists she saw and began to practice yoga, which has been a life long passion. She trained with the Cosmos jugglers in York and learned to Juggle, club swing, paint with U.V light and play with fire! Déa then trained at Greentop Circus in Sheffield in a range of circus skills including Acrobatics and Acrobalance. She then managed to realise her dream of training full-time and spent two years at Circomedia in Bristol. She went on to train with ‘The Flying Doctor’ at Circomedia in aerial skills. She holds a teacher training certification from Circomedia and loves to share her passion and enjoyment for these art forms with others. She also teaches Gymnastics.
