Our Level 1 courses offer participants the opportunity to study a single skills-specific discipline at Level 1, for a whole term.

In Flying Trapeze, the participant jumps from a platform holding onto the trapeze bar, using their legs to propel them backwards and forwards in a swinging motion whilst performing various moves on the bar. It is a dynamic and exhilarating aerial skill which provides a full body workout.

Our Flying Trapeze setup is known as a ‘petit volant’ and most of our participants wear a harness belt to ensure safety from falling. As this course uses equipment at height, participants need to be strong & confident enough to support their own body weight (min 20 secs) in order to get the most out of the class.

Who it’s for

It’s the place to start if you have no experience of circus, but wanted to learn Flying Trapeze from the absolute basics, as well as developing your fitness, and helping you to gain confidence on specialist circus equipment.

Once the teachers feel that the student is ready, they will be able to progress to Level 2.
