For the last 4 weeks the RoguePlay team have been hard at work learning BSL. This is part of our initiative to make our Rogueplay classes and events more accessible.
Ou first project to help us to do this is funded by the Birmingham City Council's Next Generation fund, where we are offering work experience placements to Young People, particularly aimed at those with hearing difficulties. (We do still have some places available so do get in touch if you know anyone who might be interested)
Its been a real challenge learning BSL but it's been lots of fun too, expecially seeing how all the company have reverted back to being at school when we are all in the classroom! We've covered loads of topics already learning the alphabet, greetings, questions, drinks, family, numbers and of course aerial circus specific words too. And what's even better is that we are learning Birmingham Sign language, apparently there are slightly different signs or vesrsions of signs depending on what area of the UK you learn it in. So we may not all be from Birmingham orignally but we can say that we are all proud to be Brummy BSL-ers!
Our teachers have been brilliant and really supportive. We will keep you updated with our progress and might even post a few videos if we get really good!
Love and pull ups,
