We teach circus arts in Cambridge. Come and learn aerial acrobatics like trapeze, silks, hoop or corde lisse. Take up the unicycle, juggling, diabolo or hula hoop. We meet every Sunday for our main practice and new people are always welcome.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

No Circus this Wednesday 20th July

There will be no circus this Wednesday 20th July due to an orchestra using the church.

 

Show and change of times for the 2nd/3rd July

 

NEW CIRCUS DATES FOR THE WEEKEND OF THE 2nd JULY:

 

All aerial is moved to the Saturday at the same time. So no aerial on Sunday 3rd July but aerial IS on the Saturday 2nd July. Youth Circus is still in the church on the Sunday 2-4. For juggling, acro, hoop and all the other ground based things we have the hall from 5-8pm Sunday (you can also use the church on Saturday as well if you like).

 

So,

 

Sat 2nd July 4-6 Aerial Drop in
Sat 2nd July 6-8 Signed off Aerialists
Sun 3rd July 2-4 Youth Circus
Sun 3rd July 5-8 Juggling in the hall

Sorry about this :( The Church are having a joint service in the afternoon. We should have told you sooner.

 

It’s Showtime!
This Saturday, 25th June, CCC will be putting on a really rather wonderful show in St George’s church at 5.00 featuring some of Cambridge’s (indeed the country’s) best. It’s free – all we ask is for a generous donation to two local charities, E.A.C.H., (The East Anglian Children’s Hospice) and The Cogwheel Trust (a local charity supporting young people with mental health issues). It’s all part of The Chesterton Festival.

Bring your friends and come and see:
Hula Hooping: Elina Vessonen
Juggling Rings: Mark Pender-Bare 
Club Passing: Ben Horgan, Mark, Brook, Becky Couzens, Philip Turner
Aerial Hoop: Thomas Spurden and Carly Marie Robinson
Juggling Balls: Brook Roberts
Tightwire: Emma Wrightt
Double Trapeze: Will Duncan and Kate Wittering

Please spread the word.

ABOUT OUR CLASSES 

Practice Sessions

We have a number of practice session throughout the week. These sessions are for people to practice skills and rehearse routines nothing is formally taught during these sessions though people often meet up and train or skill share together.

General Practice Sessions - Open to all skills and abilities. The space is shared by all users so compromises might need to be made if you require lots of space. 

Aerial Conditioning - Keep in shape and in touch while we prepare for our new aerial space.

Juggling & Spinning

If you are a juggler, poi spinner or contact juggler then Sunday nights at 5are for you. If you have never juggled before or are yet to spin a hoop or catch a diabolo then please come down to our Sunday session, they are always busy and there are always people happy to teach beginners a trick or two. We have plenty of all the basic equipment so if you don't have any of your own don't let it hold you back.

We run occasional courses in specific skills such as poi and staff and one off workshops on Tuesdays which get announced via our facebook page and on our website above. 

Aerial

We have a new rig! See above for timetable and announcements.

If you are wondering what to wear then ideally, a leotard or long top (e.g. t-shirt) and leggings, or long possibly tight trousers if you don't want to wear leggings.  DO NOT wear jewellery or watches. For silks especially don't wear jeans or anything similar, as they can rip the fabric. We suggest wearing socks and leg warmers for the warm-up and in between practice during the colder months, though no socks while on the silks. 

We have sign off sheets that we require people to have completed before practising in open practice sessions. What these sheets mean is that we think you are safe and competent enough to practise. There is a sign off sheet for each bit of equipment. If you have done aerial before and believe yourself to be competent then please get in contact, camcircaerial@gmail.com, and we can arrange for you to meet up with a member of our aerial staff who can sign you off.

Movement Training

Movement training is a mix of free running and tricking. Classes involve dynamic condition and aim to raise body and spatial awareness through movement (lots of running, rolling and jumping over things). Note: Movement Training is no longer run through CCC. See the movement training facebook page for up to date information.

Youth Circus

If you haven't been before then you will need to join a beginners class, these take place whenever enough people have shown interest (roughly once a month) so please get in contact via our e-mail address
