Professional Development Courses

Our professional courses in circus arts are designed for aspiring circus artists who have a background in dance, gymnastics, acrobatics, physical theatre, performing arts or students with no circus experience but have an excellent level of self motivation and passion.  

AirCraft Circus Academy created the Foundation and Intermediate Courses in Circus Arts and have been teaching and delivering these professional courses for over 10 years.  We have years of experience in design and delivery of the course content and structure; and both of our AirCraft Circus Academy Directors trained to be professional performers themselves, and have been professional trainers for over 15 years.  

Our courses have resulted in numerous individuals graduating onto further circus education such as the degree at the National Centre of Circus Arts, Circomedia, Ecole national de cirque (Montreal) and other International circus schools in Italy, Brazil, and Australia.

We have grown a wide range of students into elite professional performers that have either performed in events (London 2012, MTV Awards, World Skills, Download, The Box Soho, Torture Garden, Howthelightgetsin, Cafe de Paris, and many more); joined circus companies (Fuel Girls, Fidget Feet) and shows (Cirque Du Soleil's Crystal) or even created their own circus companies (Hikapee Theatre).

AirCraft Circus Performance are also actively involved in creating and staging heart-pounding contemporary circus shows in the UK and internationally ourselves, which include multiple performers from our professional courses (Boudoir Circus, Midnight Circus, Showman, Submersion). 

Our unparalleled quality is also matched with a brand new circus training space which opened in June 2018.  We have new state-of-the-art facilities, multiple studios to train in, a sauna, changing room, and a kitchen/lounge area to refuel or rest after a work out.
NEXT Foundation and Intermediate Courses in Circus Arts run from Monday 26th August to Sunday 15th December 2019.
