Circus classes are a fun and healthy way for kids of all ages to get super active, stay fit and make loads of new friends.

Physical benefits of kids circus classes include improved hand-eye coordination, flexibility and strength.

This is a fun and challenging physical course that focuses on the techniques used by circus performers on the ground and in the air.

Through physical warm-ups, acrobatics, tumbling and object manipulation, you will develop your motor skills, strength, flexibility and endurance, whilst having a great time.

Kids will also develop essential life-skills including self-confidence, teamwork and trust.
We look forward to seeing your kids cartwheeling and juggling in our amazing space soon!
