We offer one-hour circus skills lessons for children focusing on a variety of aerial skills including static trapeze, aerial silks, rope climbing and aerial hammock. While the aerial session starts at 2pm, if your child happens to arrive 15 minutes early, they can join in with free play ground-based circus skills with our collection of hula hoops, gymnastic twirling ribbons, juggling balls and diablos.
Whether your child has former gymnastics experience or would just simply love to have a go at hanging upside down and trying some moves, our classes are sure to offer them a lot of fun, exercise and new skills!
These hour-long classes start with a 10 minute dynamic warm-up to mobilise the joints, involving lots of running around and games to get those heart-rates up, after which the class is divided into groups to learn and practise aerial skills on the equipment, ending with a few minutes of stretching and cool down at the end. We'll occasionally practise routines to music (The Greatest Showman soundtrack is currently ruling supreme).
Class sizes are limited to 12, and are taught by three teachers in order to keep a child/teacher ratio of no higher than 1:4, meaning all children receive a high level of attention and tuition.
If you can't make one of these classes, we also offer bespoke children's workshops, as well as children's circus skills birthday parties.
