“Circus gives children who don’t fit the school, mold of “sporty” confidence and pride that they can achieve excellence.” – Lydia Kemp, parent.
New 6 week Spring Term: Monday 19 Feb – Saturday 31 March
NEXT TERM: Monday 16 April – Saturday 26 June
We run a year-round Saturday Youth Circus as well as regular school holiday activities for young people from ages 6-14 – no experience necessary! Your younger little monkeys aged 3-5 can join our Pre-School Circus class which is a gentle, fun introduction to circus skills through play and games. Our programme of Youth Circus introduces young people to a range of different circus skills and allows them to develop at their own pace.
Our classes in circus skills are a great way to improve motor skills, balance, coordination and strength. We believe cicus also develops confidence, discipline and team work. All our activities take place in a safe environment with professional tutors.
Classes are bookable in terms – each lasts between 5-7 weeks during school term times. If you just want to try out a session then drop in and pay on the door – subject to availability.
We cover four main areas of circus:
Basic acrobatic tumbling and techniques on the floor and the Air Track, a 7 metre inflatable tumbling track, ideal for learning to jump and land in a comfortable and safe way.
An introduction to our most popular disciplines including Silks, Trapeze, Hoop and Corde Lisse (Rope). Covers climbing techniques, basic wraps and drops, also hanging, balancing and rolling elements or tricks.
Mixed Circus Skills
Traditional manipulation and equilibristic disciplines such as Hula Hoops, Plate Spinning, Rola Bola, Juggling (handkerchiefs, balls and clubs,) Poi, Feather balancing and Diabolo.
Negotiating obstacles by running, jumping, climbing and vaulting. We teach proper landing techniques, rolls, climbing, balancing and general acrobatic movements.
