Not only within the arts world there is a continuous discussion about the impact of the arts, their "purpose" and "use" for a society or an individual as well as about the ways to measure this and to quantify an obviously very personal experience. We would like to extend this discussion to you out there and collect information on the impact that our work has... on individuals, on communities and on the wider circus and performing arts sector alike. This is not just out of curiosity and the wish to interact with our audiences, but serves a specific purpose: It will help us to continue making work that you enjoy!
As followers of our work might know, mimbre offer masterclasses in acrobatics, acrobalance and healthy physicality as part of our participation programme.
Our next 2-day masterclass will take place in January 2013 at the Roundhouse in London focusing on the discipline of acrobatics and acrobalance.
I am 10 years old and I have been in mimbre for 4 years since I was 6. It has been very fun and has taught me amazing skills since I first started. I have also taken part in the Step-Up group for 1 year. Both groups have helped me with confidence when performing and made me a better street dancer and acrobat.
Loads of people from my school go to the groups so it feels like it’s one big family.
The teachers for the groups I go to are: Lina, Natasha, Frank, and our assistant/ education officer Inni.
I really like taking part in mimbre because it’s exciting, it teaches me new things and its REALLY fun.

I really enjoy coming to mimbre, because I’m learning loads of things, also I’m meeting new friends. mimbre is really fun because we perform loads of pyramids and learn how to do...
We have been very busy over the summer with our latest show "Falling Up" touring across the UK and Europe as well as with our education programme culminating in a tour of our Step-Up group, the most dedicated and committed participants across all our classes for young people. We are very proud of our achievements in both our professional and our participatory projects and thank everybody who supported our work along the way.
