About us

Welcome to School of Larks

We are a young team of performers, teachers and yoga professionals based in Gloucestershire. We have created a rural based circus and arts school which endeavors to bring activities to the rural area which are usually only accesible in cities. The School of Larks currently provides circus skills classes for adults and children and circus and arts training sessions in the area of Stroud and Nailsworth.
We do circus classes, workshops, parties and events for adults and children in aerial trapeze, silks, hoop and rope, unicycle, juggling (diabolo, scarves, devilsticks, poi etc) balancing, hulahooping, yoga and floor partner acrobatics (acrobalance).
We are very interested in the educational and creative possibilities of aerial and other circus disciplines and the benefits they can have on self-esteem, coordination, autonomy, strength, flexibility and self control as well as cooperation and working in a team and mutual care as well as many others. There is also huge variety of different skills in circus, which means that each individual has the oportunity to find out which interests them most. As Aerial and other circus skills are considered a sport and an art they are an excellent combination as an educational tool.
Our classes always involve a warm ups, often based on yoga to make sure that all students are aware of the importance of a safe and healthy use of their bodies.
