Spinsonic Circus School is a social enterprise based in Birmingham, in the West Midlands. Founded in 2013 by Rachel Conlisk, we began by delivering hula hoop workshops and performance across the UK and manufacturing bespoke adult and children’s hula hoops.
We specialise in inclusive workshops for adults and children with learning disabilities, people who are blind, people who are deaf, and people who have other additional needs, working with Sandwell Adult Services, Birmingham Disability Sport, Beacon Centre for the Blind, MENCAP, Birmingham MIND and the Deaf Cultural Association.
Expanding into ground circus skills in 2017, we are now able to offer circus skills workshops with professional instructors in juggling, slackline, plate spinning, poi spinning, hula hooping, diabolo, stilts for children, balance/pedal boards, parachute play and a giant (5’4!) hula hoop, as well as entertainment areas for community events and festivals which engage the whole family. Our instructors are professional entertainers and performers and all hold a current DBS certificate.
We run Sensory Circus sessions for children with autism and their families, which incorporate a Chill Out Zone and an Active Zone, Seated Circus sessions, Circus Tots Stay & Play sessions, circus workshops for the elderly, for care homes, for children and adults, community events and event warm ups.
We will be offering inclusive, affordable community circus clubs across the West Midlands, if you are interested in a circus club in your area, get in touch – we would love to hear from you.
