Classes & Workshops – Circus Fun for Everyone!

Community Circus Classes for Adults and Children
We have a range of classes for both adults and children, descriptions are below, to book get in touch info@sweetcircus.net.
If you don't see what your looking for here, get in touch and tell us about it, we're always keen to hear new ideas!

 

Classes for kids & Teens:

Most of our Children and Youth Classes involve both ground skills such as juggling, diabolo and poi and aerial skills. Classes are designed to develop agility, balance, coordination, confidence, concentration, resilience and social skills.  Our specialist team of instructors are certified and experienced in working with children of all ages including those with SEND and neurological, learning or physical differences.

Aerial Dance are movement and creativity based Aerial Classes designed with dancers in mind. The lovely Electra Star Dance in Horam take bookings directly for these classes and can be contacted on electrastardance@outlook.com.

Our Home-ed Classes are relaxed and enjoyable, providing all the benefits listed above but amongst others from the home-ed community.  Circ-Ed is subsidised by the Fonthill foundation and provides the option to combine Circus Skills with literacy and Arts Award qualifications.

Youth Group Classes are fitness, strength and skills based but are focussed on self esteem, confidence, resilience and positive body awareness.

Minis and Juniors Classes very much focus on fun, confidence and emotion regulation.  So if your little one has no sense of danger or is just too shy to come out of their shell this is the prefect experience for them.

Minis, Juniors and Youth Groups are all eligible for the sliding scale payment scheme funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.  For example: Most of our classes cost £39 for a 6 week term.  In the September term there will be a minimum payment of £25.  You choose how much to pay between those two amounts based on what you feel you can afford.  You don't have to prove anything, justify it or even mention it.  Each term the minimum amount will rise a little until either everyone is paying full fees or the funding runs out.

As covid restrictions are eased we will slowly lift our preventative protocols, you can read our covid policy here.  
Many of our classes are over subscribed, we will maintain waiting lists and /or open new classes as possible.

Learn to Juggle / poi play
Juggling is the perfect movement break activity, you don't need much space, it gives your brain a workout, gets you gently moving and helps the body release hormones that help you feel good.  Poi, is a lovely movement and coordination based skill which can quickly improve your balance and inner calm.  We regularly run zoom and open air sessions, keep an eye on our social media or contact us to be put on the mailing list for notifications of up coming sessions.  These sessions are on a voluntary donation basis.  Click on the picture at the bottom of this page if you would like to donate.
Our Learn to Juggle programme is funded by the Devonshire West Big Local and Active Sussex.   Classes are based around our Learn to Juggle kits which can be found here. Although you can easily make your own from some socks, handkerchiefs and a cereal packet find instructions in our resources section.
