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.

ONLINE CLASSES NOW OPEN!
6-week courses start Monday 13th April (Easter Monday)

You'll love the convenience of our 6-week online courses!  Our classes are conducted using Zoom meetings, and to protect your privacy and online safety, we'll email you the links each week.  We'll also record the class and email you a link to watch the recording, so you don't need to worry about missing a class, and you can do the class again as often as you like!

When you book for a 6-week course you'll see the benefits of training regularly with more rapid improvements.  We also offer drop-in classes so you can book for drop-in classes any time during the course.
