Circomedia's Youth Circus provides children from as young as four with the chance to enter the extraordinary world of contemporary circus and physical theatre. With a variety of groups to cater for different ages and abilities, our experienced practitioners ensure everyone is safe and supported. In weekly sessions last either and hour or an hour and a half (depending on age) children can explore the joy of circus and have fun developing their co-ordination, building physical and mental resilience and making friends in a relaxed, creative environment.
