A huge thank you to everyone who responded to our feedback competition last month! We had thirty respondents, and got a lot of great ideas for ways to improve your circus experience. Keep reading to find out the results and what we’ll be bringing in as a result, or skip straight to the bottom to see the prize winners.
It was good to hear that you think our trainers are doing a great job and that we’re providing a good service for a decent price:
“This place is amazing. The trainers are very professional and the classes are small. I am doing things I never thought possible.” – survey feedback
Most students are also improving during their classes, learning new skills and gaining confidence, & fitness along the way:
“Circus Akimbo has helped me learn new skills and helped me discover a great way to keep fit and have fun at the same time. All of the coaches are so helpful and motivational, and the performances are loads of fun too! Couldn’t recommend classes more. Bec J”– survey feedback
We did also get some valuable feedback about things you’d like to see more. One of the common themes was a request for more casual workshops and more open training sessions, with a focus on enabling more performances both through opportunities and specific training.
We’ll be using these suggestions to create new opportunities for you, starting with this list:
- An additional open training session each week for adults
- Performance troupe for kids, with additional access to training sessions and performance opportunities for those who are ready to further hone their skills
- Upcoming holiday workshops TBA
- Easier booking system currently being implemented! See Akimbo CRM for details
Another key takeaway was that we need to focus more on community building and special events. 60% of our survey respondents felt like part of the community, but we’d love for the remaining 40% to feel the same way! While a lot of circus training revolves around individual achievement, it takes a community to create a circus. Keep your eyes out for new events on the social calendar!
We offered prizes for this survey, as feedback is super useful and free things tend to be the best motivation.
One lucky winner, Athene A, has won a free term of circus classes for herself (or a child) AND a friend! We’ll be in touch this week with details on how to claim the prize.
There are also five winners of a smaller prize pack, which can be collected from the studio anytime from today:
