WHAT EXACTLY ARE CIRCUS CLASSES?
You may associate circus with the traditional big top tent, with red-nosed clowns, candy floss and acrobats flying around. However, there's more to circus than meets the eye.
You may have even dreamed of flying through the air, but thought you never could. WELL YOU CAN!
Here at AirCraft Circus Academy literally anyone can run away with the circus! We offer weekly classes in many disciplines including: static trapeze, flying trapeze, silks, hoop, rope, straps, dance, handstands and acrobatics.
