We offer a range of multi-skill classes for children in trapeze, acrobatics, juggling, tight wire walking and much more.

We include lots of games for a focus on fun and teamwork, and also run a Youth Circus which offers teenagers and young adults a space to hone their skills and opportunities to perform.

At the end of each term, each class is invited to put together a showing for parents and family members to come and celebrate what they have learned.

Circlets

Circlets classes are for young people aged 5-7 and follow roughly the same structure as Circus Steps, with more of a focus on games and student-led learning.  — Book online

Circus Steps

Circus Steps is one of the world’s first circus skills curriculum for school age children aged 7 years and up. Developed in Europe, these classes cover the basics in aerial, juggling, balance and acrobatics in a progressive and fun way. Each term children perform a show of their skills for their peers, which encourages team work and achievement while gaining valuable experience in being part of a show situation. Each ‘step’ is marked by the attainment of a badge, all twelve badges together create a circus tent that can be ironed on to most items of clothing.

Classes are grouped by step level, 1-4, 5-8 and 9-12, and each class runs for 1.5 hours on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons at either 3.30 or 5.00pm. We have a 1:8 instructor to student ratio to ensure your child gets the best possible guidance to learn new skills. — Book online

Youth Aerial

Youth aerial is a focussed class where young people will gain the strength and flexibility to perform manoeuvres on trapeze, silks and aerial hoop.  This is a physically demanding class open to those who have a particular interest in aerial, a previous history of dance or gymnastics, or as a supplementary class for youth circus members. Classes are on Friday 5.00 – 6.30pm. — Book Online Here
