Dublin Circus Project runs a variety of youth circus training programmes from primary right through secondary school. Participants of DCP youth programmes will have the opportunity to learn circus skills while developing personally and socially and having fun. These classes will take place on Monday evenings in Castleknock Community Centre and Tuesday evenings in Orwell Hall, Christchurch Rathgar.
The benefits of circus skills in the development of youth are broad ranging and long lasting. Benefits include increased hand-eye coordination, balance, body and spacial awareness, increased focus and attention, personal and social capacity, imagination, creative expression, and more, all within a non-competitive atmosphere
