At our Circus classes you can try out our two long acrobatic tumble track mats or our acrobatic crash mat and learn acrobatic tricks ranging from cartwheels all the way to back handsprings and back tucks!

If you are feeling more like joining the ‘circus’, come in and learn various ground circus tricks including unicycling, straight stilts, peacock feather balancing, pipe walking, diablo, roller bowler, kangaroo stilts, monkey bike, plate spinning, hula hoop, tightwire, walking on the big red ball and juggling scarves, balls, rings, clubs and even knives (seniors only)!
