The Cirque Us Teambuilding Experience is a multi-day corporate event workshop culminating in a Cirque Us corporate entertainment production show, in which the audience (your attendees) actually gets to perform on stage using the skills learned in the workshops leading up to the event! Click the tabs below to learn more about Cirque Us and how Cirque Us can bring its unique style of corporate team building entertainment to your next event.
Cirque Us Teambuilding is a one-of-a-kind interactive entertainment experience for your audience.
Cirque Us Teambuilding is a workshop experience culminating in a Cirque Us production show, in which the audience actually gets to perform on stage! Audience members learn to perform different types of circus arts with our instructors in team building workshops leading up to the performance. We then use their newly-learned circus skills to create an performance segment, then that segment is performed on stage along with the specialty act performer/ instructor. In the process, your attendees will experience the “magic of the circus”, that feeling of teamwork that comes with being creative and working together (with a deadline!), then standing out in front of a live audience of their peers and experiencing the results.
Cirque Us Teambuilding is completely customizable based on your venue, attendees, and the workshops you would like to focus on with your guests. The workshops leading up to the production can be as short as 2 days or up to 7 days in duration, depending on the complexity and the message you are trying to deliver.
The Cirque Us Teambuilding instructors are world-renowned specialty artists and trainers. They, and the specialty acts they have trained, have been performed in professional cirque-style shows worldwide.
The ultimate in teamwork, and the ultimate experience…….. Cirque Us Teambuilding.
