Acrobatic arts

Acrobatic Arts

Circus disciplines where your feet stay on the ground at least some of the time are fantastic for building confidence and proprioception as well as strength and flexibility. Learning to perform balances with groups of people is a superb way to develop collaborative and communication skills at the same time as doing cool stuff.

You can usually learn a trick or two in the first lesson and acrobats love to perform in our regular Scratch Nights to show friends and families what they’re up to.

Like aerial classes, you can book one at a time to enjoy a smorgasbord of circus across different disciplines in your own sweet time if you don’t feel ready to commit to an Acro Pack, although before long, the reduced price will probably seduce you. And of course there are our programmes to consider.

If you’re aged 7-18, you’ll enjoy aerial, acro and other arts in our Youth Circus, which is bookable term by term. It’s designed to give you a strong foundation and develop all our skills while letting you see if you’d like to specialise in something in particular. Students 13+ are eligible to attend adult classes if they wish to specialise in a specific discipline.

  • Acrobalance: two or more people work together to create awesome balances, lifts and shapes.
  • Handstands: we’ve lost count of the number of absolute beginners who always fancied mastering this skill and were delighted to achieve their goal thanks to our step-by-step style of teaching. Once you can hold a handstand, it’s incredible how you can develop the skill to create more amazing shapes.
  • Acrobatics: take handstands, cartwheels and flips and turn them into sequences on our tumble track. You’ll be surprised how your ability develops.
  • Acrobatic dance: a mesmerising mixture of spins, dance moves and balances.
  • Chinese pole: the stable vertical rubberised or powder-coated (not shiny steel) pole is used for climbs, holds and balances.
  • Trampolining: as well as classic bouncy tricks and challenges, you can learn the very cool variation – trampoline wall running.
  • Parkour: with its origins of moving quickly and lightly across urban landscapes, circus parkour incorporates the obstacles we create in the space.
  • Teeterboard: the exhilarating see-saw discipline can be performed in two ways. Two people use it to send each other into the air in turns, or one person stands on one end while two people take a running jump on to the other end, pinging them high in the sky (in safety lines!) Either way, the goal is to perform tricks while you’re airborne.
