We have 2 classes especially for children in the Home Education community. Classes sizes are capped to ensure your child gets extra attention and instruction. Sweet Circ-Ed can supplement your home ed curriculum providing physical activity and education, performing arts, and learning / social skills such as focus, resilience and confidence. Learners will be introduced to a range of Circus Skills including ground skills such as juggling and plate spinning as well as aerial hoop, silks or trapeze. The course can form part of your Home Ed Curriculum involving physical activity, social skills and performing arts.
The Minis class is aimed at 4 – 8 year olds while the Juniors is for 8+. Both sessions are held on a Wednesday morning at the Yoga Life Studio in South Street.
This class is suitable for children age 6 – 16 and is situated in a fully equipped Aerial Fitness Studio. Classes involve a short ground-skills session, followed by a warm up. Students are then divided in to age / size / experience related groups to work on aerial equipment. As with all Aerial Studios this one is cold during the colder weather so ensure you bring layers and parents wishing to stay and watch will also want to wrap up! Mondays 5 - 6pm.

Coming Soon: SSS – Supported Strength and Stretch for adults
'SSS' or Supported Strength and Stretch is a new exercise experience. Mobilise joints and wake up muscle groups in this relaxed class with your weight supported in a loop of silk fabric. Perfect if you have been away from exercise for a while, if you want to try something new or if you are Aerial Curious! Please note you may be required to ‘spot’ for each other (assist each other and keep each other safe).

We are currently seeking a venue in which to re launch our much loved Circus Tots class
Circus Tots is a circus themed active play session for parents and pre-schoolers incorporating balance, agility, coordination, social skills, confidence building, creativity and a whole lot of fun.
Activities are designed for children to participate with their parent / guardian, and if you have more than one pre-schooler activities will be adapted to suit. We will be using circus equipment, movement and games in a supportive and friendly environment. Sessions will include warm up activities, coordination, strength based activities and a cool down section.
