“To have good prospects in life - young people now need to be creative and innovative problem solvers. The arts help develop that! Tony Wagner
‘Almost 70 percent of young people participating in sports will quit by the time they’re 13 years old. 70 percent! And, what’s worse, they’ll quit permanently.’
As children become teenagers, their priorities change, as well as facing pressure to pare down their interests and focus on school they’re going through major physical, emotional and social changes, which actively discourages some youths from continuing with clubs , trying new things or just participating for fun.
We are super proud of all of our circus students who have not fallen into the above statistic!
Our coaches at GEMS will promise to continue to do our best to support our teenagers by:
- providing positive coaching
- making our classes enjoyable and fun
- create non judgement, safe and supportive environments
- help to remove any lack of self belief and body image concerns
We love how this photo captures different teenager characteristics🥰🎪

Happy Halloween 2021 🎃

Calling all boys:
Did you know that circus training benefits all other sports, too?.
You know how football players study ballet to improve agility and grace on the field? Circus has a similar result! Circus trains balance, co-ordination, strength, agility, flexibility, and spatial and body awareness. The feeling that comes from being able to lift your own body and know where it is in space is quite liberating. Being able to juggle boosts self esteem. Being able to participate in a high energy sport that’s non competitive is pressure free allowing creativity to bloom.
Come trial out circus - it’s ace!
Something inspiring for all my circus students. Go get your tickets ….

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change”.
- Albert Einstein
Looking back at the last year and boy oh boy haven’t we all all learnt to change and adapt amid this pandemic?
This photo was one of the last taken in our old studio before we adapted, moved to the new space and then moved onto zoom❤️🎪🥰 Feb2020
A positive from this lockdown: you will all be bright sparks by the time we return to some normality!!
See you all back on zoom next week. Links will be sent out over the weekend.
In these uncertain times, one thing remains certain: L-O-V-E! Love is all around and we truly believe it should be expressed every day, in every way.

First schools and now Higher Education!
Please please sign this petition to stop opportunities being taken away from our young people.
Performing arts encourages exploration , expansion of imagination and developing ones own, unique voice. Each discipline, music, dance and drama, engage a young persons brain, body and emotions in different ways to encourage their confidence and find joy in self-expression equalling to a higher emotional intelligence.
Emotional intelligence should be a principle learning factor for young people now and beyond this pandemic.
Petition: Don't scrap funding for BTEC Performing Arts I want the government to not defund BTEC Performing Arts. The government states ‘that all technical qualifications should offer the firm prospect of a sustainable job and career.’ So they don't think that Performing Arts can lead to a good career! Well it can!!
How insanely cute are these clown shoes?❤️🎪
