Circomedia Youth Circus is an exciting after-school programme of circus skill classes for 4-18 year olds. Students learn the fundamentals of juggling, trapeze, walking globe, acrobatics and lots more. They are taught at their own pace in groups of similar ages and abilities, while being encouraged to excel in several disciplines.

If you’re interested in the Youth Circus but want to make sure it’s right for you, this Youth Circus taster session is the perfect place to start. Booked as a one-off, you’ll have a chance to meet our lovely tutors and get to know the basics of circus.

Held on our Full Flying Days,  flying trapeze tasters offer a quick hit of flying adrenaline. Always fancied trying it to see if you love it or hate it? Try this class! Learn to harness up, climb the ladder, take off from the platform, swing, and gently land in the net, and familiarise yourself with the process gradually.

Safety lines connect you to your harness to keep you safe. Our experienced tutors on the floor will ‘lunge’ you using these lines to keep you safe during your take off, swing, and landing.

After taking off you’ll swing back and forth across the space, and at the caller’s instruction you’ll let go to land in the safety net. Flying trapeze can be daunting, but our tutors make sure you feel safe and secure – and the second you leave the platform, you’ll be hooked on the feeling of swinging through the air!

Please note that this class is suitable for beginners only. You won’t be able to do complex tricks, but you will get a taste of flying trapeze and get used to how it feels! If you love the flying trapeze tasters, book onto one of our longer beginners’ & improvers’ classes which always include a round of catching.

These sessions are 18+. For ages 10-18 please see Under 18s Flying Trapeze.
