IF YOU LOOK LIKE THIS WHEN YOU'RE JUGGLING, THEN YOU'RE DOING IT RIGHT
The Circus society is a not a place for people who know how to juggle, it's a place where we teach people how to juggle. Of course we don't just teach people how to juggle, we teach them how to use there body in all kinds of creative ways they never thought possible. As well as juggling we cover a wide field of skills from hula-hoop and acrobatics to staff, poi and hats.¬† All these are are not only fun group activities to keep physically fit but juggling has also been shown to increase grey matter in the brain and is a great form of meditation. So we're all kept healthy in body and mind
In our first year in the college 04/05 we won Best New Society at the college awards and in our second year 05/06, we won Best Society at the college awards and went on to win Best Irish College Society at the national BICS awards. We regularly take trips to national conventions most years but unfortunately this year that's unlikely to happen.¬† It's a great way to make friends all over the country, even all over the world! We try to work with many other societies in the college to make events bigger and better! It's also a great way to improve hand-eye co-ordination and get fit (juggling is a form of cardio-vascular exercise!). So if you wanna learn a new skill, make some great friends or get in shape, Circus Soc will help you out, just come along to any of our meetings
Here's a video link to soem of our members talking about the society. Some of them are new, some are old but all of them are here for a fun time and some craic!
