Here's what past students have to say about the course:
Sukey Calladine 2018/2019: I have had an amazing time on both the Foundation and Intermediate courses. AirCraft has provided me with a platform to express myself creatively in a safe and friendly environment. Not only have I gained a much wider range of circus skills, I have made lots of new friends and memories.
Megan Maher 2018: Since training at Aircraft I have been training and performing back home in ireland. And thanks to the skills ive learnt with Aircraft, I felt confident in my audition and I have been accepted for 2 years training at circomedia in Bristol. I came to Aircraft with zero circus experience and now on the road to making it a career.
Merryn Novelle 2017/2018 (Foundation & Intermediate): This course was literally the best thing I have ever done! You learn so much in such a short space of time and grow both physically and mentally. The course is challenging but so much fun and so rewarding. So much so that I did the Intermediate Course as well
Alicia Pettan Brewer 2016/2017: Coming from a dance background, I had an amazing time in the foundation and intermediate courses with AirCraft Circus. The courses are intense, however I felt that I was accepted into a loving family who supported and pushed me towards my dreams. Thank you everyone at AirCraft Circus for your passion and life-long support. In 2017 I was accepted onto the Foundation course at the National Centre for Circus Arts in London and have recently been accepted into the BA Degree, where I will specialise in Multicorde and Doubles Trick Bike.
Julia Schultz 2018: My work colleagues thought I was a bit bonkers, but looked on somewhat enviously as I left to take 6 months out and ‘run away to the circus’. And wow – what an experience! Full-on, full-time training – pushing physical and mental abilities (I’m also scared of heights!). Thank you Aircraft Circus for an amazing few months I’ll never forget.
Maria Hermato Ricota 2015/2016: After the 2 amazing courses at AirCraft Circus I came back to Brazil and entered a contemporary dance professional course at Escola Angel Vianna. I graduated in 2019. I have been teaching circus to children from the age of 2 and have been connecting aerial work with floor work. I also have a dance and circus company called Coletivo Comover. I miss my AirCraft family and London and hope to come and visit soon.
Becky Hoyle 2015: The foundation course was a fabulous four months, memories I will never forget. I found strength and creativity I never knew I had! Aircraft Circus inspired and helped me get my foot in the cabaret door, where I have since developed my own burlesque act performing at many Cabaret nights in London including Duckie, LADS and Cabaret Playroom. I have travelled to Dubai, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong and Singapore performing in various Children’s shows along with travelling up and down the U.K. in Rod Campbell’s Children's Classic ‘Dear Zoo.'
Jessica Doolin 2015: Enrolling in London's AirCraft course was one of the scariest but best decisions of my life. I had no idea where it would lead me but I took a chance at it. In such a short space of time I grew into the person I wanted to become. Not only was I physically capable of performing a new act by the end of it, but overall I became more confident, fearless and the best part of it was getting to be apart of this community, full of like minded and passionate souls who just want to pursue their dreams. Until this day we stay in touch and constantly support each other. It's not an easy path and I am truly grateful to have these people by my side. 3 years later, I got my first dream job in the Maldives last October 2018. I perform all over China and work internationally. If you had of asked me 3 years ago when I first began Aircraft this is where I would be, I wouldn't of believed you. As many doubts as I had at the time when I made that decision to come to aircraft circus, looking back now I don't think I will ever regret making that decision. It truly is one of the best investments I made for myself. Miss you aircraft team!!! Hopefully I will be performing with you one day!
Teresa Callan 2012: My training and work with AirCraft Circus has cultivated a well rounded performing and teaching career from Corporate to Cabaret to Theatre and Live Events. Credits include Olympic Events, ITV, Sky Entertainment, English National Opera and work opportunities all over the world. Thank you so much to AirCraft Circus for their stunning vision and courage to create a world that brings together talent and creative space, creating opportunities for genuine individual artistic professional development.
