Proactivity Circus Skills

At Proactivity, we believe that learning circus skills creates a sense of achievement and boosts self-esteem. Basic skills can be learned very quickly and most people find that they can do something that they previously thought 'impossible'. Skills such as flower sticks, plate spinning and juggling with scarves, bean bags or balls improve hand-eye coordination, concentration, manipulation, throwing and catching skills.
