Adults' circus classes
(Playtime for grown-ups)

When we were kids, we couldn't wait to move.  We jumped on the trampoline all day, climbed trees, and swung on the swings until adults told us to stop. 

We didn't do it because it was good for us, but because moving brought us sheer delight.   In motion was how we were most ourselves, present  and connected.

At CirQuest, we train circus because it feels like that again.  Circus makes us happy.
 

Our adults' classes run in short courses for 6 weeks, and our next courses will be starting from October 11.
