Testimonials

“I was really blown away by the Juggling and Clown workshop that Sergio and Ana brought to our Karangahake Community last month. Everything was thought through and planned out so well, and communication with the parents was very thorough around what to expect and what we needed to supply. One of the coolest things I liked about this workshop was the fact that they made all their own props – the kids made their own juggling balls, they made their own poi and they made their own staff before learning how to use them! I think that really added value to the kids experience. You can tell Naranjarte are professionals at this. They really encouraged the kids to learn and try new things, to explore what they are capable of and to grow as people. So valuable for little people still trying to learn confidence and their place in the big world.”

“Thank you so much for taking the time to teach little people like this. These skills will stay with them for a long time, and give the little ones many interesting opportunities in the future.

I have been looking for opportunities to develop my girls’ skillset in circus or other interesting ways for a while, so was absolutely stoked to find your classes locally. And they are even teaching me! Which is so awesome, because teaching is growth, and growth is so so important! Especially in this crazy world 🤪

I look forward to seeing how much growth you can squeeze into the next two days, and seeing the kids having fun together. ”

“My 3 children absolutely loved your 4 day program, they have been showing everyone the skills they have learnt and singing the tower of strength song all day!
This was an amazing experience for them and one of the best holiday programs we have come across, Holly, Hudson and Isla will never forget the fun activities, special memories and new friends they have found in you.
You made them feel very welcome and comfortable in your presence.
Would highly recommend this course. “
