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