Danny Zapparelli’s Circus Skills Workshops are a wonderful school activity and offer supporting links to curriculum subjects such as music, art and physical education. They provide unique, engaging, and fun packed sessions that will live long in the memory of all who participate.

“Danny’s work at the school has really opened the imagination of the children as well as giving them real life experience of plate spinning, walking on stilts, tight rope walking and juggling. This yearly activity is enjoyed by pupils and staff and as a regular visitor, Danny delivers the workshop with a clear explanation of what a circus is, what it includes and excludes, and the skills necessary to be a circus performer. We thoroughly enjoy the workshops, and would most definitely recommend his services.” Geoff Barlow, Head Teacher and Susan Elles, Director of Arts Prestwich Community High School

“Danny’s show is wonderful he is funny daring and very child centred. I would book him every term if I had enough money.” Katherine Samad, Head Teacher, St Johns CE Primary School Bury

Circus Skills Workshops are a great way to have fun while also developing balance with hand eye coordination. Working together children will gain an appreciation of cooperative team work. The children will also benefit from learning new skills, which in turn leads to a growing sense of achievement and self esteem.

There is plenty to keep your pupils entertained regardless of their age or abilities. Workshops can be designed to suit any class size or specific requirements and can be adapted for pupils with disabilities. The workshop can also include an interesting session covering the history and development of circus through the ages.

Circus Performance – In addition to his workshops Danny can also deliver a versatile circus performance with unicycling, magic, circus skills, comedy and audience participation. The show lasts 45 minutes and climaxes with a daring, spectacular display of juggling on a giraffe unicycle. This is guaranteed to amaze and entertain pupils and teachers alike!

This Circus Show can be booked as part of a skills day or as a stand alone production.

‘The Magic Tree’ is our company’s environmental education show. There is magic in the air and a message in the fun. ‘We all love trees’ is the theme song. This is children’s  entertainment which will delight them and give a genuine, clear 'green' message that our planet has to be cared for. The hero Roxy Foxy and the Crimson Fairy contrive to save it with the help of the Wizard of course! There are cuddly amusing glove puppet animals; Slippery Snail, Croaky Crow and Cyril Squirrel who pop out of the holes in the tree. Theperformance involves lots of audience participation.
