Glasgow's Circus School

About

Our team has a passion
for circus and developing people.

Aerial Edge was founded by Mark Gibson and Charmaine Muller in 2007 from their passion for circus and teaching people. Over the last 13 years we’ve had many great additions to the team who have helped to build a top quality circus training facility in Glasgow which is open to everyone.

    Mark is the Managing Director of Aerial Edge and has specialised for the last 20 years in education for both technical, physical and artistic disciplines. When he’s not on a trapeze Mark works in humanitarian education providing education to disconnected communities around the world.

    In 2000 Mark began training in static trapeze and has since been performing with both solo and doubles aerial acts for the last 19 years. Amongst other places, Mark studied at The Circus Space, London for 8 years; but also attended intensive courses at The Circus Warehouse, New York, ARCAA, Sydney, The Circus Centre, San Francisco and Circocan in Brazil. He has been teaching aerial disciplines since 2007.

    Mark has an extensive background in Chinese Martial Arts and Tai Chi in which he is an international gold medal winner and has been training and teaching for the last 32 years.

    Mark develops education systems and learning content for community learning centres and schools around the world. Initiatives include connecting communities with mobile broadband, providing education in conflict zones and programmes to increase equality in access to education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
