Youth Circus | Jedis | Tues, Weds, Fri & Sun
Our Jedi age group takes young people aged 11+ on the next step of their circus journey. If you're a beginner, continuing your weekly dose of circus fun or wanting to get serious about circus there's a place for you at NoFit State.
Serious Circus | Mad for circus? Take three or more classes a week at a discounted rate.
We know lots of our young people also attend classes for fun and fitness, and we’ve also designed our programme to make sure our kids who are ‘serious’ about circus get the training they need to put them on the road to be professional performers, while making sure there are still plenty of fun sessions for those who want to come recreationally. Over the last few years, we have been proud to see our Serious Circus students enrolling on to BTEC’s and Degree courses at Circomedia in Bristol and National Centre for Circus Arts in London.
Those interested in joining serious circus should book in person or by calling 02920 221 330
Circus skills class
After an acrobatics warm up session, students get the chance to work on a range of circus skills such as trapeze (static and flying), tightwire, rope and silks, aerial hoop, unicycle, juggling, diabolo, in a fun, social non-competitive environment.
Ground based skills
This is a general skills class where our tutors give you free reign to learn the juggling and balancing skills you want to learn in a relaxed and friendly environment. You’ll get expert tips on your technique and newcomers will be taken through a range of skills including juggling, unicycle, diabolo, hula hoop, stilt-walking, and tight-wire.
For this session the whole main space will be filled with acrobatic equipment. There will be acrobalance and tumbling every week, with a guest skill every month.
You will also learn handstands and headstands. We have lots of new gym equipment including an Olympic size trampoline, teeterboard and airtrack.
This class is only available to those taking three or more classes a week and must be booked in person or by calling 02920 221 330.
The performance troupe sessions will be used to work on performance technique, to assist students with audition pieces for circus schools, and to work on shows which will be performed regularly.
All aerial skills will be available - static trapeze, rope and silks, flying trapeze, aerial hoop, plus some new skills such as web rope and doubles/triples trapeze.
Students will be given a good grounding in all skills before being encouraged to specialise.
