World class circus arts training for all
We are one of only four national circus schools in the world and is unique in the UK. Housed in a redeveloped power station in London’s East End, for the past 25 years we have been inspiring and mentoring people of all ages and backgrounds through our unique programme of circus arts training.
With your help we want to grow a culture of circus across the UK, one that is alive with creativity, ambition and excellence.
