We have been teaching circus skills in schools for over 25 years, working all over the UK and Internationally, with schools, community groups, charities, corporate events and at festivals. During that time we have been lucky enough to develop close working relationships with some of the very best in the industry. As a result we have a highly experienced team, who bring a wealth of cultural, performance and social experience to every aspect of engaging with young people.
