|Creation of a performance
||This procedure is foreseen for the final meetings, after each pupil has chosen the activity they want to specialise in, and small working groups have been created. Each meeting is dedicated to a speciality, in order to allow all the pupils to express themselves in all the circus disciplines.
The teacher subdivides the space for each of the groups of instruments and explains the activity: creation of group performances in an autonomous and creative manner.
Each group has to follow the execution of the sequence to be performed: Entrance, performance, greeting the public, exit.
The performance includes coreographic actions and original themes, using a musical background.
|Creative and musical walks
||Creative walk with music, moving, occupying all the space previously delimited, staying away as possible from all the others, using three different musical rhythms: normal, slow and fast, without running. When the music stops, everyone has to stay still like a statue.
