Our classes cover a range of aerial and acrobatic disciplines and are designed to cater for all ages and abilities, everyone is welcome at The Oak Circus Centre.

From complete beginners taking their first tentative steps into aerial to those of you who long ago mastered the ropes, our tutors will help you discover and develop skills all inspired by the circus!


Ground & Aerial Skills

Amazing Classes
Amazing classes and a real community feeling. They make you feel so welcome and never fail to find a way to help each and everyone succeed.
Not sure I can sum up how much I love training here in a few words but it is the best type of training ever.


Private Classes

We can only cram so much into our regular programme of classes, and we get a lot of requests to try other skills such as swinging cloudswing, unicycle, contortion and stilt walking!

If you want to hone your skills or try something new, we have tutors with a wide range of specialisations that can fit your needs. We deliver one to one sessions for adults or children, and can also cater to duo’s or private groups. Bookings of 10 private sessions come with a discount.

Most one to one sessions last for one hour, but we can cater to longer sessions if you prefer.


Open Training

Two hours a week of open training, every week from 6pm to 8pm. For more experienced students to come and practice what you have learnt during the week!

A social event, open training is a great way to get to know other students, practice your skills, share skills with others, or practice routines for up-coming performances. Please be aware slots are now limited due to social distancing and infection control.
