‘Circus Zapparelli’s work at the school has really opened the imaginations 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.’ AA
Circus Zapparelli has worked with Prestwich Arts College for a number of years. Their collaboration at the school has enabled children to learn and develop their physical skills when practising different circus performances. The circus theme is a part of the school curriculum in Year 7 and this project spans across various subjects in the art faculty. Therefore Danny’s presence really A gives the children an insight into the circus world. Year 7 pupils are then able to create artwork based on a workshop delivered by Zapparelli. They also work towards a performance day with Danny as a special guest which includes, Dance, Music, Drama AA and Physical Education, in order to celebrate the work the have produced’.
