Circus skills are not only fabulously fun, but they are also steeped with creative and educational possibiliteis…participants may find themselves experiencing increased self-esteem, coordination, autonomy, strength, flexibility, and self-control.

The spectacular array of circus skills available allows each student to find their interests and passions. Aerial and circus skills provide a remarkable combination of sport and art which makes them an important educational tool.


Our holiday sessions in each school holiday and half term feature a range of different circus skills and aerial, so that students can explore and expand on their skills throughout the year.
