Classes for Kids and Youth
Ages 7 - 14
Cirque Kids (7 - 10)
Does your child climb anything and everything in sight? Why not sign them up for lessons on aerial silks and hoop? Aerials are a great way for kids to build strength, coordination, and confidence. During the 8 week session, children will have the opportunity to experience both apparatus, learning basic technique and skills on each, as well as playing fun, active, circus themed games, learning some basic tumbling and acrobatics and learning to stretch safely to maintain or increase flexibility and prevent injury. Class sizes are small (a maximum of 6 students per instructor), and children will progress at their own speed and comfort level.
Youth Aerials (11-14)
Is your preteen or teen enchanted with the beautiful acts they’ve seen performed in Cirque du Soleil? Now they can try aerial silks and aerial hoop for themselves. Aerials are a great way for youth to build strength, coordination, and confidence.
Basic technique and skills will be taught on both apparatus (silks and hoop). Class sizes will be kept small (a maximum of 6 students to one instructor), and students will progress at their own speed and comfort level.This class will be focused more on aerial skills and will have less time spent on games and activities than Cirque Kids.
Our Cirque Kids and Youth Aerials classes for ages 7 - 14 meet weekly and are run in terms, generally 8 weeks in length. Pre-registration is required.
Please note, we will accept youth ages 15-17 in regular adult curriculum classes, with parent/guardian permission. Please contact the studio if you wish to enrol a youth in a class other than Youth Aerials.
