Intoduction to Circus Course

This is a chance for your child to run away with the circus for a unique opportunity to try their hand at unicycling, tightwire walking, juggling, tumbling, stilts and diabolo.

8 action packed weeks working with a team of highly trained circus teachers supported by top teenagers from the Belfast Youth Circus.

An amazing way to build skills and have some fun in the run up to the Summer Holidays. If your child enjoys this introduction they will be invited to continue after the summer break

We will be running a series of classes for 8-13 year olds to attend on Wednesday nights from 6 - 7.30pm at St Martins Hall on the Newtownards road.

New Itty Bitty and Youth Classes

We at Belfast Circus are very excited as we have just secured use of a new space in Belfast and this means that we can start up a range of new classes!

Class places are now available and will be offered on a first come first served basis - those people who book online quickest and pay for a space will get it first. As those with children on our waiting list were given the first chance to book these spots, some classes are already full so move fast!

The only way we can hold these new classes is by charging to cover the costs of trainers and hiring the hall so the cost is a bit more than current classes, but it is not dependent on any grant funding so we can guarantee to carry on running the classes.

Classes for 2-3 year olds will be held on Fridays from 10-11am and 11.15-12.15 (class sizes – 16 children) These classes involve parents/guardians so wear something comfortable to move in.

Classes for 4-5 year olds will be held on Tuesdays from 4 - 5pm and Fridays from 3-4pm (class sizes – 20 children)

Classes for 6-7 year olds will be held on Tuesdays from 5.30-6.30pm and Fridays from 4.15 - 5.15pm (class sizes – 20 children)

Youth Circus classes will be held on Saturdays from 10-12noon and 12.45 – 2.45 (8-12 year olds)

To book your space, please head to: GetInvited

Class spaces are limited and this is the only way to confirm your child’s spot.

The first term will run from January – end of March/early April.

50% term deposits are £42 for Itty Bitty classes (under 8 years of age) and £51 for Youth classes – this includes a small handling charge by the website which we have absorbed.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch on admin@belfastcircus.org

The location will be - St Martins Church, 88 Newtownards Rd, Belfast BT4 1GW
