Facilitated training / open training is a dedicated practice time for circus and multi-disciplinary practitioners. A Circus Factory facilitator will be on hand to offer a group warm up and cool down and answer any questions or help page equipment etc. It is an opportunity to start developing a self directed practice for your chosen discipline(s). It is important to note this is not a taught class. Those attending must have a discipline they are already learning or practicing. - Sign ups must have some experience in what they are training - this session is not suitable for first timers.
- Students must only practice what they are learning in class. (no Insta-learning please)
- Students / open training artists must not practice any moves alone that have previously required spotting by tutor / training buddy.
- Landing mats are mandatory for any aerial or dynamic floor aerial acrobatics.
Facilitated training is open to students/practitioners from beginner to advanced/professional level.

The circus factory is such a fantastic place with amazing tutors. There is never any pressure to go higher or do anything I'm uncomfortable with but I still always find myself pushing my boundaries from the support and enthusiasm of Brenda and the students. Couldn't ask for a better environment to see what I'm capable of or better people to share a passion with.
“Finding circus was such a life changing thing for me, in it I found not just a physical outlet, something that had been lacking in my adult life but also a creative outlet, a place to be inspired and explore my crazy ideas”
“Brilliant venue. great for learning circus skills with lovely teachers”
The Circus factory is like a big playground where creative people play and work with each other and learn from one another. Exploring new movements is one of the most beautiful ways to entertain your inner child.
The equipment in CF is always improved/ updated and above all when it comes to aerial rigging/equipment it's regulated & safe. Knowing you can train on apparatus that is rigged well and checked regularly means a lot”
“The best place in Cork to get fit and push your limits while having a lot of fun.”
“Circus Factory has been an amazing organisation and community to get to know. By learning skills I never thought I could manage, It has helped me develop confidence not just as an artist but in my everyday life as well”,
