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. Each year, you can join our summer school, and come see our death-defying show at the Strawberry Fair .

Youth Circus @ Circus Space
We are looking to send a group to the 6th National Youth Circus Event that is to be held in February 2014, Friday 21 – Sunday 23 at Circus Space. The event is for groups of 6 consisting of 5 under 25s and 1 practitioner (over 25). It is a free event and includes “workshops, masterclasses, professional performances, professional development for circus tutors and the opportunity for youth circus groups to showcase their skills in a cabaret at a central London venue.” So if you are interested in then please get in contact ASAP as the deadline is the 25th November, only days away @ email@example.com
We will be holding a Christmas Cabret on the 25th December it is always a fun event so come along and if you can bring some Christmas goodies along to share then all the better. If you are interested in performing either to show off some tricks or have an act you want to perform then please get in contact by eithter speaking to a committee member or e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to low attendance we have had to stop our hula hoop classes, however if you want to learn come along to either our Tuesday or Sunday practice sessions and there is likely to be someone around who can show you a few moves.
Teacher the Teacher Day
We are holding a ‘teach the teacher’ day for aerial teachers on the 7th of December. Places are limited and there are only a couple left. So if you are interested in getting involved in CCC teaching aerial then this is a great way to start. Contact email@example.com
