- The first modern circus was staged on Jan 9, 1768 in London
- In 1792, John Bill Ricketts opened the first American circus in Philadelphia, followed by New York City & Boston
- In 1884, five Ringling brothers staged their first circus and soon after bought out Barnum & Bailey in 1907
So after our history review, we couldn’t help but think – The Circus is a centuries-old, tried-and-true tradition, and therefore would make an awesome team building event.
After working through some of the logistics and putting together a detailed event plan, TeamBonding has officially given birth to an event likely to make Cirque de Soleil jealous – Cirque de Team.
Fun Team Building Exercises: Cirque de Team
The “Cirque de Team” event is a circus-inspired team building program that requires a group of creative, daring and fun-loving individuals to join forces and tackle the tightrope.
Behind the trapeze artists, acrobats, ring leaders and lion tamers is a powerful force of teamwork joining them together to produce a spectacular event. Anyone who has ever been to a Ringling Bros. Circus event can muster just how much team bonding is involved in one show.
In fact, TeamBonding believes that the equation to success is simple.
Fun + Interactive = A happier, healthier team
Backed by dedicated event managers and resilient facilitators, Cirque de Team is a sure fire way to have teams come together, compete against one another, and have a blast. With events such as, tight rope walking, pie throwing, trapeze swinging, and stilt walking, Cirque de Team provides entertainment and team building for all.

There are little things that people do that can cause us to scream in our heads – “Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God, will you stop PLEASE!” – but the annoyances are usually so trivial that no one ever really shares their frustration out loud…at least not until it’s too late to sound rational.

Turnover Formula: Employee turnover is the percentage of workers who leave your organization, the employment relationship ends and they are replaced by someone new. Attrition is different. This generally refers to the end of the employment relationship due to retirement or job elimination or employee death. When attrition occurs, the position is not filled with a new employee.
In business and in life, people are rewarded and praised for success, which creates a culture where we don’t learn from failure.
Team building applies to any field, even a football field. Following my favorite sports teams is my number one hobby! It’s fascinating to see how the most intense sports teams perform; the way they communicate, work together and understand each other. As fans, we care about the win! However, we have no idea what effort goes on behind the scenes. I realize that to have such a fierce demeanor as a team, it takes some work, teamwork. For players to cooperate, commit, and triumph, they first establish a fundamental core with team building.
