Adults' circus classes

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 we had 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.

You'll love the convenience of our 6-week courses!  When you book for a 6-week course you'll see the benefits of training regularly, and if you miss a class, you can take advantage of our flexible make-up policy and come to another class any time during the 6-week course. We also offer drop-in classes so you can book for drop-in classes any time during the course
