London Youth Circus

Who it's for

Young people aged 11-21 years who are interested in entering the circus arts as a profession - several of our BTEC and BA Hons students have come through the London Youth Circus. A background in gymnastics or dance can be helpful, although we take students based on future potential as well as existing experience.

What you can do

Focused training in either flying trapeze, static trapeze, tightwire, acrobatics or juggling. This progressive course is designed to develop technical circus skills, encourage critical thinking and inspire creativity.

Students must be dedicated  and ensure they attend their course regularly.  They have the option of taking extra circus fitness classes to continue their learning in various circus skills, fitness and strength.
