ACT I, Altrincham Creative Theatre School’s junior section, recently welcomed Alex Pletscher to one of their Saturday morning meetings. Alex, who runs Circusology, gave the students a Circus Skills Workshop which was hugely enjoyed by Tutors and students alike. He began by balancing a table on his chin before offering it to anyone who wished to have a go! Going back to basics Alex then spent the morning demonstrating and helping the drama students master a number of different skills.
The students learned, amongst other things, different juggling routines, stilt walking, plate spinning, how to use pedal-go’s and unicycles. “They were very disciplined, keen to have a go at everything and I really enjoyed the time I spent with the group. The morning just disappeared!” he said
