Skylight Youth Circus

Ever wanted to try your hands, feet or whole body learning a new circus skill?  Skylight’s youth circus offers classes for children and young people aged 4 to 19 years old.  You’ll learn to juggle, ride a unicycle, walk on a tight wire or even hang out on the trapeze.  Circus offers challenge, creativity, physical and personal development.   

Members of all Skylight youth circus classes will develop circus skills, confidence, make new friends and have opportunities to perform.  Sometimes we also arrange trips to see shows.  Recently we watched a brilliant show by Citrus Arts and Walk the Plank

“Youth Circus is an escape, it’s like nothing else.  It never fails to put a smile on my face and the joy I get from learning new skills is fantastic!” Jessica White aged 16
