Circus Competencies Catalog Erasmus Plus

3C takes on a mission opening door to use circus pedagogy as a tool in health, education and social sector to inform and train their professionals. We share our knowledge through digital books, courses, catalogues and events.

3C is an international project and includes three circus realities, from three different nations.
The project leader is the Hungerian Juggling Association (MZSE), for Italy it is a Circo Tascabile and for the Czech republic that is Cirqueon.
Each partner was funded to produce open source pedagogical outcomes.
On this page you can find the freely downloadable works or the links to the partners’ files.

The outcomes produced by Circo Tascabile are:

O1 Manual of Motor Capacities in the educational circus

This text aims to analyze the educational circus from the perspective of the most recent theories and methodologies of motor activity.

From this point of view, the four main disciplines of the educational circus will be explored, namely Equilibrium, Acrobatics, Juggling and Physical Theater, creating a basis for the most objective development possible of motor skills connected to circus skills, with the aim of creating a learning path motor skills aimed at the amateur environment, but at the same time capable of laying good foundations for a possible opening to a professional deepening of the aforementioned disciplines.

This text is addressed to all people connected to the pedagogical circus, to the curious, to newbies but above all to those teachers who already have a little familiarity with the subject want to deepen it and “formalize it”, to all graduates in Motor Sciences, Physical Education teachers and sports operators in general and, why not, parents too, who want to enter this wonderful world, capable of providing infinite growth stimuli for children, teenagers and more.

O1 Core of circus pedagogy

The pedagogical research team of Circo Tascabile has selected, read and reviewed ten texts considered milestones for circus pedagogy, unmissable volumes in the library of every circus teacher.
Good reading and good study by the staff of Circo Tascabile.

O2 Book of functional juggling

Craig Quat, the inventor of the QuatProps method and the concept of functional juggling, thanks to the support of the esramusplus 3C wrote a text that explains both philosophically and pretically his innovative philosophy on juggling. The text can be downloaded for free from this link:

O3 Scientific results

With the neuroscientist G. Fini we explored various topics related to neuroscience and juggling through the creation of four short videos each dedicated to a different topic:

1st video “how scientific research is structured”

2nd video we analyze the research Neuroplasticity: Changes in gray matter induced by training “(Draganski 2004).

3rd video we analyze Training induces changes in white-matter architecture “(Scholz 2009)

4th video we talk about juggling and insight


O8 Workshop of Functional juggling

A goal of the 3C project was to structure an official workshop of the QuatProps method specifically dedicated to Europe.
This result is based primarily on the O2 text “Functional juggling, a book about juggling” and represents its deepening.
In the two attached pdfs you will find the description and the program of the workshop, in its theoretical and practical parts and the setting of the experiential part in the street.
