Circus workshops for wellbeing in a difficult Covid world

You need

Lucas Jet

It's tough out there right now...

As adults we've found the new normal extremely challenging to adjust to. From what I've seen and heard from talking to teachers, the pupils have largely taken it all in their stride. 

But we must recognise that the new Covid world and restrictions are having a massive effect on children's wellbeing. It's more important than ever to look after our own mental health. That's why I'm excited to be offering Covid safe circus workshops to schools around the UK. 

The video below shows our usual assembly show, we understand that this won't be possible for a while. Instead we want to offer individual mini performances to accompany circus skills workshops within the children's bubbles.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“So glad I booked Lucas for our Arts Week! You’ve been great to coordinate plans with and extremely accommodating with everything I’ve asked! Your workshops were perfect for the ages of the children and you and Johnny were an absolute delight in your show finale!

 

Not sure where you find your energy from! The time and patience you have with every child is heartwarming! The children adored your visit and the added extras of performing when the children walked into school in the morning will have made long lasting happy memories. Thank you Lucas and Johnny! You made our Arts Week extra special and just perfect!.”

What happens in a Lucas Jet Covid safe Circus Day

Arrival

I always arrive at 8am in order to have time to set everything up and have time to warm up. I carry quite a lot of equipment so if you can get my car as close as possible to the hall that's always appreciated.

Our first circus workshop session will be with the first bubble you choose. This will last 40 minutes. It will include; plate spinning, juggling, flower sticks and diabolo. I have enough equipment for 2 bubbles to have completely new equipment.

Cleaning

After the first 2 bubbles have participated we will have morning break. This gives me a chance to dip and disinfect all the equipment. 

After break there should be time for 2 more sessions before lunch with freshly cleaned equipment.

One more clean

Lunch time offers another opportunity to clean equipment. I may require a separate room to do this if your catering team need to set up.

ABOUT
Me

I'm 4 x British Unicycle Champion and present live skills that a lot of children just won't have seen in real life. It's powerful stuff. 

Leon&The
Place Between

A fantastic book that I am often asked to bring to life through my magical circus performance. Let's give the pupils something to write about.

Engage
all

Every school has the pupils that struggle to engage with learning or mainstream sport. Circus workshops can often be a breakthrough for many pupils as it uses a different part of the brain.

Lucas & Jony

A circus show & full day of circus workshops

For slightly larger schools or an extra special treat you might want to put on a mega show. Some of the showstopping stunts that I can do with Jony just aren't possible solo. It also means we can run two sessions simultaneously. 

From:

£600

2 days of Lucas

Same as others but for 2 days. 

I'm often booked to stay for multiple days, this might be because you only have one hall and not all pupils can watch the show at once. Therefore 2 days is useful to give everyone adequate time to enjoy the sessions.

Bring a book to life for your pupils - World Book Day

A primary school in Northamptonshire asked me to help them bring Leon and The Place Between to life for World Book Day 2019 and you can watch the stunning result below. I also wrote a blog post detailing the amazing levels that the school went to so you can check that out as inspiration for your next world book day.
