Saturday Rebel Circus

classes for ages 13+

Rebel Circus



In this class, you will learn lots of different circus skills, from tumbling and acrobatics to hula hoop and juggling. We will also introduce the low tight wire to practice the art of ‘funambulism’ and you will learn to ‘fly’ on aerial silks and similar apparatus. 

Extra exciting is that we will have the opportunity to show off our skills in a youth cabaret at the end of the term. And if performing is not your thing, don’t worry, there are lots of ways to get involved in creating a show.

For Who

We are delighted to offer a circus programme bespoke for teenagers. This course is suitable for previous students to our youth programme and we also welcome students who are new to circus. Teens are encouraged to try fun circus activities such as juggling, hulahoop, acrobatics, tightwire and aerial arts in a safe and non-competitive environment.
