Please note, the age range provided here is a guide and when we allocate people to classes we consider their developmental stage in a circus context, and which class will most suit them. We are flexible! We are a circus!

The benefits of circus classes are many and varied – just as the different tricks you learn are many and varied! Circus classes increase your fitness, strength, flexibility and balance, they are fun, creative and interactive. Classes assist with developing focus and multi-tasking abilities and provide a great way to meet other people, and learn new tricks to show off to your friends and family.
