circus for kids
Our average classes have a ratio of one teacher to three or four students.
When students arrive, they warm up, divide into groups, and go to different stations. Students will learn tricks at their own pace on ground and aerial equipment.
Stretchy, comfortable clothing that allows easy movement. A unitard, stretchy pants, or leggings with a leotard or a tight fitting shirt (one that won’t come up when you are upside down!) with sweatpants are appropriate. Please no Velcro or zippers. Shoes and socks will be removed for classes.
It is important that you DO NOT APPLY HAND OR BODY LOTION on the day of class, especially on the inside or your hands or on your feet or ankles. Lotion makes it difficult to grip and climb our equipment.
At an age appropriate level, children will learn a variety of the following activities:
- Low trapeze
- Spanish web (soft rope climbing with tricks)
- Balance boards
- Triple trapeze
- Hula hoping
- Buddy walkers
- Team walkers
- Mini trampoline

- Muscle strength (including core muscles)
