Collection: Classes and Workshops

Classes & Workshops – Circus Fun for Everyone!

Children's and youth Classes are back :)
We're so happy to be able to bring back our children's classes and youth groups in a covid secure manner as of 19th April.  Not only that, funding from The National Lottery Community Fund has enabled us to offer a sliding scale payment scheme to assist your little (and not so little) circus stars to start or get back to learning and playing circus.  
Full details below
Learn to Juggle Adult Social will remain on Zoom for the time being and we intend to add some learn to Juggle / Poi Play in the park next month. 
Our Learn to Juggle programme is funded by the Devonshire West Big Local and Active Sussex.   Juggling is the perfect lockdown activity, you don't need much space, it gives your brain a workout, gets you gently moving and helps the body release hormones that help you feel good.  Better still join a Zoom session and you'll get some social interaction, something we're all lacking in our lockdown lives.

Classes are based around our Learn to Juggle kits which can be found here
Although you can easily make your own from some socks, handkerchiefs and a cereal packet. 

These Learn to Juggle sessions are on a voluntary donation basis.  Click on the picture at the bottom of this page if you would like to donate.

Aerial Dance are movement and creativity based Aerial Classes at the lovely Electra Star Dance in Horam.  They take bookings directly and can be contacted on electrastardance@outlook.com.
Most of our other Children's Classes involve both ground skills such as juggling diabolo and poi and aerial skills. Classes are designed to develop agility, balance, coordination, confidence, concentration, resilience and social skills.
Our Home-ed Classes are relaxed and enjoyable, providing all the benefits listed above but amongst others from the home-ed community.  Circ-Ed + funded by the Fonthill foundation combines Circus Skills with literacy and Arts Award certifications and qualifications.
Our Youth Group Classes are fitness and strength based but are focussed on self esteem, confidence, resilience and positive body awareness.
Whilst we are still living under covid protocols sessions are a little shorter than normal and the only Aerial Equipment in use is Aerial Hoops which are easily cleaned between users. Our youth groups are not doing ground skills at the moment to ensure they all get plenty of time on the hoop. 
Circ-ed Minis, Circ-ed +, Minis, Juniors and Youth Groups are all eligible for the sliding scale payment scheme funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.  For example: Most of our classes cost £39 for a 6 week term.  In the April term there will be a minimum payment of £10.  You choose how much to pay between those two amounts based on what you feel you can afford.  You don't have to prove anything, justify it or even mention it.  Each term the minimum amount will rise a little until either everyone is paying full fees or the funding runs out.
We expect many of our classes to be over subscribed and will maintain waiting lists and or open new classes as possible.  If you would like to give Sweet Circus a try get in touch now to register your interest and secure a space: info@sweetcircus.net
