SEN (Special Educational Needs) Circus Workshops London

At AirCraft Circus Academy our mission is to provide circus experiences to people of all ages and abilities!  

Our teaching team can deliver workshops that include a wide range of circus activities for adults and children, both seated and mobile - including those with specialist needs, disability, dementia, and Parkinson’s.

Whether you are looking for a series of regular group classes, a one-off workshop, or a private 1:1 class, our highly trained instructors can provide fun filled, creative, and educational experiences for those with complex needs, social difficulties, and SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities)

What is the emphasis of our workshops?

To provide playful, creative, and unstructured fun.  Activities can include Juggling, Hula Hoops, Poi, Plate Spinning, and Tight-Wire; as well as wonderful aerial skills such as Silks, Aerial Hoop, Static Trapeze, and even Flying Trapeze! 

How is this achieved?

We will work in collaboration with you to build a package suited to your individual and group needs, ensuring you have an enjoyable experience whilst learning & developing new skills. 

What are the benefits?

Circus can target reflexes, rhythm, balance, co-ordination, and concentration - whilst also improving confidence, and physical and mental well-being.


Our workshops can be run in our studio spaces or offsite in a suitable location for your group; when running workshops in our space we can offer a mixture of aerial and ground skills, whereas offsite we can offer ground skills only – both options make for an exciting and fun workshop!


Our studios are located on the 1st floor of a unit in Thames-Side Studios (Woolwich), we have a stairlift (seated) to assist participants in entering the space, and all of our workshop spaces are on the same floor – alongside a disabled toilet.
