Nearly There Yet has organised and led a number of successful workshops for children, young people and adults, both as one-off sessions and a series of sessions. Our drop-in workshops and taster sessions include dance and basic circus skills such as object balancing, juggling, hula hooping, unicycle, stilt-walking and acrobalance. We also provide courses and masterclasses tailored to clients' needs. We are able to provide our own equipment as well as highly skilled and DBS checked instructors.
Please have a look at what we can offer and get in touch for availability and pricing.
