Kids Summer Circus School

Adventure Circus are welcoming all youngsters who have completed P1, up to completed S2 to come along to our summer circus school!

Aimed at both absolute beginners and regular class attendants, we will show a world of possibilities to them!  Only 15 spaces available in each session.

Time: 10am to 4pm each day

Session 1: Monday 15 July - Wednesday 17 July (new students)
Session 2: Thursday 18 July - Saturday 20 July (current students)

Over 3 days, we will let parents have a rest while we teach children the basics of circus skills, from the floor to the air! Our skilled floor instructors will give lessons in acrobalance, while our aerialist instructors will have everyone flying through the air (but low down and securely) on silks, trapeze and aerial hoop!

At the end of each week we invite parents and family members to come and watch a short performance that the children will have worked on at 3pm on the Wednesday and Saturday of the respective sessions.
