New Advanced Youth Circus Class!

Flying Trapeze

By Jon Worden from Learning to Fly by Sam Keen

Starting this September we’ll be running a brand new advanced class for students who are looking for more opportunities to develop themselves as young circus performers.

In this new class students will focus on their favourite circus skills, developing and refining technique. They’ll learn how to train effectively and independently and have the opportunity to create and perform solo and/or group routines.

Let’s get serious about circus!

The class is suitable for 11-18 year olds who want to get serious about circus, and are committed to developing their circus and performance skills.

Students should:

  • Be committed to learning and developing their circus skills
  • Be eager to learn to train professionally and independently
  • Show high levels of maturity towards their training
  • Have a desire to create or perform their own circus acts/routines

Some background or experience in circus, gymnastics or dance is helpful but not necessary and we recommend that you attend at least one other circus class during the week.

Places in this class will be limited. Book your place now.

If you have questions about suitability for this class please contact us.

Wrapping Up Our Youth Classes for 2015/16

Our youth circus classes have been going from strength to strength

Foot on WireOur new style of class – with increased autonomy and play – have been a big success. Students have been enjoying the freedom and self-directing nature of the classes and have been showing much higher levels of commitment and determination in learning circus skills.

Our students’ end of year showcase was a big upgrade from previous years and demonstrated the success of our more learner-focused class delivery.

In September we’ll be continuing to refine our approach and hope to see our students taking big strides as young circus artists.
