Circus ​Steps

Ages 7-12

Circus Steps classes cover the basics in ​aerial, juggling, balance and acrobatics ​in a progressive and fun way. Each term, ​students perform a show of their skills ​for their peers, which builds team work ​and performance experience. Students also ​receive a badge each term to mark their ​progression through the levels. Classes ​are broken into 3 level groups.

Circus Steps Levels 1-4: Best suited to ​students aged 7-9.

Circus Steps Levels 5-8: Best suited to ​students who have had either circus or ​gymnastics experience or students aged ​10+ starting circus for the first time.

Circus Steps Levels 9-12: Best suited to ​students who have had either circus or ​gymnastics training experience.


Ages 5-7

Circlets classes follow roughly the same ​structure as Circus Steps, but with a ​shorter class and more of a focus on ​games and student-led learning.

Youth Aerial

Ages 8-17

(prior experience required)

Youth Aerial classes focus on learning skills ​on silks and static trapeze, along with the ​development of strength and flexibility to ​support progression on these apparatus. This ​is a physically demanding class open to those ​who have a strong interest in aerial and ​previous experience in circus, dance or ​gymnastics. For new students, please contact ​us at before ​enrolling.

Youth ​Fundamendtals

Ages 13-17

Youth Fundamentals is an extension of Circus ​Steps for teenagers continuing on or for those ​new to circus. Students are encouraged to follow ​their strengths and are taught higher level ​skills in a wide range of circus disciplines. ​There is a strong physical training component to ​this class.
