ITTY BITTY CIRCUS (ages 2 - 7 years)

Itty Bitty Circus - aerial hoop

The aim of Itty Bitty Circus is to deliver an opportunity, through Circus, for creative and developmental learning for 2-7 year old children. The classes are broken down into three age groups:

  • Bumble Bees for 2 -3 years old
  • Zebras and Monkeys for 4 - 5 years old
  • Gazelles and Giraffes for 6 -7 years old

Since Itty Bitty Circus started over 4 years ago, it has become the most popular class offered by the Circus School. Taught by expert professionals with sensitivity and encouragement, your child could be taking part in lessons involving basic acrobatics, balancing, creative expression, juggling and aerial arts.

The carefully constructed curriculum of Circus Arts introduces challenging and exciting activities to stimulate coordination, balance, motor skills, body awareness, teamwork, communication and determination to learn and enjoy personal achievements.

Sessions are non-competitive and designed around the needs of the individual child within the group.

All classes are 1 hour per week. These classes are currently full and a waiting list exists. To register your details on our waiting list or for more information, email reception@belfastcircus.org or call 02890 236 007. Please include your child's name, date of birth, your name, two telephone numbers and address. These classes are subsidised by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland National Lottery Funding, but we ask for a donation to make up the costs

Due to high demand for these classes we also now also run classes for this age group at St Martins Hall on the lower Newtownards road on Tuesdays and Fridays

For children aged 8 and upwards please see Youth Circus or Other Youth Classes
