This month I had the great opportunity to go to Argentina!
I´m coordinating an International Social Circus Project: Suitcase Circus For Youth,  a project that has beneficiate 600 disadvantaged young people all around the world through local community workshops in Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, Argentina, Belgium, Estonia, Spain and England!

CircoMoto

I´ve create a new Circus Group with young parents/careers and toddlers called CircoMoto! Inspired in what I learnt during my experience in Belgium with Rika Taeymans, founder of Circomotoriek methods and director of Cirkus in Beweging (circus in movement).

bq10. October circomoto

I run the group every Monday, a local community in Leeds. CircoMoto, is about Circus games for Children and their parents.  Using very natural, simple and playful exercises, we make the children aware of their strength and their power. The aims of the this personal project is to develop the awareness of the body improving the child´s motor skills, to improve the relationship with parents and toddlers (3-6 years) building trust and confidence in themselves and each other, to encourage creative exercise learning some acrobatic skills and of course, to have fun!”

FEBRUARY 2015

Article of our great project in the Circus Digital Magazine: El Circense!

Last October when I went to Argentina I had the chance to meet with María Gil Navarro, a good friend from University and what a coincidence, she is the editor of one of the most important circus magazines!  Therefore we agreed to make an article in February to promote our new project and to tell what we were doing in Buenos Aires with our last Project.  And here we have my first published article!!

bq16. article

In this month we´ve got, as you know,  the Start Up Meeting of Suitcase Circus SCREAM , a new International Circus Project which brings together  9 organisations from 8 different countries. This project will give the opportunity to mobilise professionals and trainers in order to enrich each other Social Circus methodology and resources, we´ll work as well for the recognition of Social Circus as a educational activity methodology.
