John Hinton headshotJohn Hinton is... JUGGLER and MIME

John's very first job after University was as a freelance juggling teacher in schools. Since then he has worked as a juggler, mime and entertainer at hundreds of functions, and taught circus skills at upward of a thousand schools.

He juggles five, 'flashes' six, and has some level of expertise (enough to teach kids anyway) in diabolo, devil stick, poi and chinese ribbon. He also runs classes in ringmastering and clown. He is DBS-checked.

He trained in mime at the Jacques Lecoq School in Paris. Here he is demonstrating this skill at the Victoria & Albert Museum's David Bowie exhibition a few years ago:

And here's a video of John facilitating a circus skills workshop in Adelaide, Australia, in 2008:
