About Us

AirCraft Circus Academy is London’s oldest and leading independent circus training school based in The Royal borough of Greenwich, South East London. Originally founded in 2002 at 'The Hangar' in Stratford, moving to Thames-Side Studios in 2007 as the 'Hangar Arts Trust', and now trading as AirCraft Circus Academy (2018); the school has been training youth, adults, and professionals in circus arts for over 18 years.  We are committed to making circus training accessible to everyone and believe in making the impossible possible, especially for people who want to learn or use circus arts to enrich their lives. Whatever your starting ability, everyone has the potential to shine, it's just a matter of training and the right guidance. We are known for our elite circus trainers, who are experts in their discipline, as both practitioners and performers. We focus on enhancing fitness, physical ability and wellbeing in a nurturing, safe, yet challenging environment.
