Introducing our Academy
We offer full-time circus education for students aged 16+ at BTEC, degree and MA level. Our unique approach to training means that our graduates leave Circomedia with the skills and confidence to build successful careers where they can use circus and physical theatre to express themselves.
We run a vibrant programme of events, showcasing some of the most exciting circus and physical theatre acts from the UK and around the world.
Finding Your Class
From complete beginners taking their first tentative steps into aerial, to those of you who long ago mastered the ropes, our excellent teachers will help you discover and develop a passion for circus skills.
We provide opportunities for residencies, rehearsal and training space and mentoring. These are available to alumni, or artists who didn’t train at Circomedia, but who share our principles of the artist as creator, combining of artforms and using the body to convey meaning.
Why Support Us
Through your donation, you can help us develop key projects that encourage access to the arts for marginalised communities, young people and local residents.
