Young People

“Circus gives children who don’t fit the school, mold of “sporty” confidence and pride that they can achieve excellence.” – Lydia Kemp, parent.

Book our Circus 250 Summer Term: Monday 4 June – Saturday 21 July

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:

Acrobatic Tumbling
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.

Aerial Disciplines
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.

Parkour
Negotiating obstacles by running, jumping, climbing and vaulting. We teach proper landing techniques, rolls, climbing, balancing and general acrobatic movements.

Sessions begin with fun and lively warm up games to focus little minds and get them moving before scaling the aerial equipment or learning floor skills. Children should wear comfortable clothing which covers most of their skin to avoid injury and bring water and a light packed lunch. Each class will be tailored to the abilities and interests of students present. Suitable for ages 6+
