Trapeze, silks, hoop, acrobatics, group acrobalance, trampoline, parkour, juggling, tightwire, object manipulation – it all begins at whatever stage YOU are at, depending on what YOU want. Circus is about creativity, and anything is possible.
If you’ve never done anything like this before, the supportive instructors will help you to find out what you love. Everyone is capable of achieving some cool aerial and acrobatic moves, step by step.
If you're already agile and strong, they will make sure you find all sorts of new ways to challenge yourself using the circus equipment. If you enjoy dancing, gymnastics, acrobatics, parkour or trampoline, circus activities will actually develop those skills further, while you learn new arts – and you may find the freedom and creativity circus exhilarating.
You’ll be amazed what you can do in just one lesson. Aerial Edge, Glasgow's Circus School, has always been dedicated to developing people through circus, so instructors are experts at encouraging confidence and other life skills along with the ability to juggle and do flips and tricks on the tumble track or on the aerial equipment.
It’s all about collaboration rather than competition.
