Unique Circus Team Building Activities to Entertain
Unique Circus Team Building. Our circus team building knows how to build your corporate group in a way that’s fun, exciting, and memorable. Circus team building activities are designed to engage employees with each other and their work environment in ways they might not have considered before.
We’ll help you get out of your comfort zone and into one that’s more exciting and rewarding than ever before! Each team has to set up an extraordinary circus show with fun acts: clowns, juggling, balancing, dancing etc. Everyone in the caravan is a selected circus cast member and will have special acts to perform. Dress up as circus clowns, juggling balls, hula hoop dance, make balloon animals and more! After all, you are all a very important part of the show!
It takes many acts to make a great circus which is why your team is a caravan circus, travelling from city to city. This time your destination could be Bangkok, Thailand or even Marina Bay Singapore. Does your company need to step outside of the box? We’re talking about an actual box, but we mean it in the best way possible.

Circus Team Building Entertainment Acts
These interactive and entertaining team building activities are the perfect choice for your corporate event. Clowns, juggling, hooping and other activities make up this unique and fun event.
Perform a Juggling Act
Perform juggling and balancing acts using balls, clubs and the odd knife or two! Ok, perhaps not the knives but it’s a skill your team will need to master!
How to Juggle
The easiest way to juggle is with scarves as they are lighter and slower than other objects such as balls. Start by throwing one scarf in a small arch to the other hand. Practice for a while until you get the feel of it. To make the technique smoother, practice scooping by dipping your hand before tossing the scarf. After a few times toss the first scarf and add the second when the first is above eye level. Sounds easy but it’s going to take some practice – before you start throwing the knives!
Benefits of Juggling
This could be your perfect workout after all juggling is a kind of aerobic exercise! Because you have to focus it improves concentration and is the ultimate way to relieve stress. Juggling improves coordination and can be done almost anywhere. Did I forget to mention it’s supposed to make you smarter?
Become a Circus Clown
You then create and dress up as clowns adopting an eccentric and fun character using the make-up provided. Don’t worry, it all washes off! You are then given fun time to practice and perform a variety of circus acts, ready for the big top show! Prepare and set up your gags to express your clown’s character.
Types of Clowns
There were three types of clowns, The Whiteface, The Auguste and The Tramp. The original clown characters came out of the “rustic fool” early modern commedia dell’arte (rehearsed improvised comedy), which were based on the characters of ancient Greek and Roman theatre.
The Whiteface Clown
Whenever we hear the word ‘clown’ these are the clowns that usually spring to mind. Commonly known as the classic clown these were the ones usually associated with the circus. The character is usually the boss of all other clowns and he is known to be the serious clown type.
The Auguste Clown
This is the misfit as the name suggests ‘Auguste’ is German slang for buffoon. He is the joker or fool and always gets into funny situations when performing tasks. He is also the less intelligent clown that takes a pie or bucket of water in the face.
The Tramp Clown
If anything is going to go wrong it will happen to this clown or more than likely be caused by this clown. He assumes the character of a “down-on-his-luck” clown and the idea may have originated from vagrants who rode the rails during the Great Depression during the 1930s.
Perhaps some may not see him as a clown today but he was one of the all-time greats – Charlie Chaplin. He was known as the tramp during the silent film era and became an icon in world cinema. Joseph Grimaldi was considered the father of modern clowning during the early 1800s. he was supposedly the first clown to wear whiteface makeup and large smiling red lips.
Bozo the clown on TV shows during the late 50s which premiered in Chicago. He wore a red bulbous nose, red hair and oversized shoes. His show lasted for several decades. How could we not forget to mention Pennywise who appears in Stephen King’s classic horror novel ‘It’. He was a fictional character and perhaps the most frightening clown of all time. Unless you find all clowns scary, suffering from Coulrophobia.
Clown Face Paint
There are many brands available today for clown face paint and it can even be homemade from simple cornstarch and flour. Face paint should be FDA compliant, and well suited for sensitive skin. We recommend testing it before applying it to your face! You should be able to apply it with ease and it should also resist a moderate amount of your sweat.
Circus Team Building Acts with Animals
Train wild animals: tigers, lions and elephants a variety of circus tricks! Unlike some circuses, no animals will be treated cruelly! They could be ferocious though! Okay but seriously! We don’t approve of wild animals being exploited especially in any circus act. We believe wild and exotic animals used for entertainment suffer for their entire lives. Most of these animals were taken at a young age away from their families and endured abusive training methods to do the tricks they perform. Wild animals belong in their natural habitat and not a circus!
Create a Little People Team Theatre
Round off your caravan circus with our ‘Little People’ act to perform a song and dance and you’re ready to go! This part of the act is guaranteed to give everyone laughs! Imagine a puppet show except you are the puppets! Our Circus corporate event in Thailand is a unique and exciting activity that challenges teams to work together, build trust, and foster a sense of camaraderie through fun and thrilling circus-themed challenges.
