Upswing offers at-home circus practice for seniors and more

Circus arts organisation Upswing is sharing resources on circus skills as a way to help you stay active during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. 

These resources range from solo circus for older people who are self-isolating, to activities for kids and the whole family.

Homemade Circus for Older People

Story Box Circus is an Upswing project delivered in care homes in Hull as part of Hull City of Culture in 2017.

It includes simple circus skills that can be done solo at home and with minimal equipment. They can be done seated, and as your confidence and skills improve – and if you feel like it – you can develop your skills standing up.
