ZIP ZAP CIRCUS SCHOOL
As we live through making history in a global pandemic, something enormous has altered our world as we knew it. Some refer to it as the time of ‘Great Realization’. It depends how you look at it. Zip Zap is looking at this challenge with fierce optimism and determination, underpinned by the values that circus teaches us.
As a social circus we promote ‘social cohesion’. Today we practice ‘physical distancing’. Apart is the new Together. The circumstances mean that our training programmes and live shows are suspended. Threatening our sustainability.
However, with heaps of imagination and cartwheels of reinvention, we have continued to inspire, motivate and train our beneficiaries. Thanks to our generous donors, fans, family and friends.
Zip Zap has launched the Virtual Travelling Circus to keep our children connected to the circus family. Visit the Circus magic filled with fantastical treasures to keep you enthralled, entertained and engaged. We have also benefited from food relief initiatives to help our most at-risk families with sustaining nutrition.
Let’s keep the circus magic alive and the show on the road!
We heard from the Zip Zap family during lockdown:
Nawaal Deane (Simunye parent)
“We did not expect Zip Zap to continue teaching during lockdown. To my surprise we received personal calls, regular feedback, communication, and videos to keep my 11-year old daughter engaged and connected. We are humbled to be part of this community and grateful to the funders and team that bring the Zip Zap ethos into our homes. We received personal phone calls, individual feedback, constant communication and appropriate videos to keep my daughter engaged and connected during lockdown. My daughter was able to feel less lonely and see her peers through videos they all shared.”
