Rigging Course Circus Training safety

With rapid growth alongside the development of sometimes 'draconian' Health &
Safety directives, it feels more relevant now than ever to have clear concise
information as to practical and realistic safe working practise.
To gain this knowledge from such an experienced and creative rigger as Bryan is
a fantastic opportunity. The course itself continues to develop according to
demand and reliance, providing aerial practitioners with a good foundation of
working knowledge: to know what questions to ask of a venue, it's technical
team  and riggers ( where relevant), to understand basic safe working practise
and what equipment to use when enabling the aerialist to develop confidence in
both their rigging and ensuing performance.
It should be compulsory learning for anyone working in the aerial arts".

Lindsey Butcher, Director - (EADF) European Aerial Dance Festival.

“I just wanted to let you know that the feed-back from the course has been really
positive.  Even the students who have been rigging for a long time and have done
many short courses over the years said that this was the best that they have
done.  Several people have said to me that they think it was the best rigging
training course that the circus school has provided, so again thank you very

Anita Woods, Belfast Community Circus.

"High Performance's Rigging course is an outstanding resource for technicians and
artists of any level or background. The approach is professional and concise,
bringing a practical and truly useful introduction to the fundamentals of rigging.
We were delighted to be involved with it's inception back in 2012 and will
continue to present it as a cornerstone of our Irish Aerial Dance Fest Programme.
We have no hesitation in recommending this course as being of the highest

Chantal McCormick, Festival Director IADF (Irish Aerial Dance Festival).

"I found the course extremely well put together and useful, well-paced with a
good mixture of theory and studio sessions. I also found that the combination of
participants was really helpful - it was people's questions about the unique
situations in which they needed to rig and the brilliant case by case responses
that Bryan gave to these queries that were as helpful as the syllabus content -
and the resulting discussion with these knowledgeable participants too.
It was so great that a course of this type (ground-breaking in an industry that is
hard to 'standardise' because we are constantly using and testing equipment in
new and unexpected ways) was run in Bristol. Thank you for a brilliant course!"

Catherine Boot, Theatre Bristol - UK.

"The rigging course run by High Performance was a complete success. The course
had clear information and covered in depth the theory and practical solutions for
rigging in performance & circus.
The delivery of  the course was very professional, fun and well paced, Bryan
delivered it in such a way that it was made clear and easy to understand. Bryan's
experience in the field  is invaluable in providing insight and information not only
on the physical and theoretical practice but also about industry standards and how
to address common issues found on the job in real situations.
Some of the delegates on the course had already attended various rigging
courses, but this was by far the most valuable and relevant to our industry.
It was a real pleasure and we look forward to running more rigging courses with
High Performance".
