WELCOME

We teach circus arts in Cambridge. Come and learn aerial acrobatics like trapeze, silks, hoop or corde lisse. (NB.  Aerial acrobatics is temporarily suspended until spring when we set up our new space.) 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 .

ANNOUNCEMENTS

New Rig, New Timetable! 

We have our new rig in the church and sessions are now in St George’s Church, Chesterfield Road, down Fraser Road, off Milton Road, Cambridge CB4 1LN. See below for the new timetable.

 

The Rig is Here!

Yes, you really are reading a post about aerial sessions again!
After a very late finish today, Wednesday 20th May, our new rig is fully installed and we'll be working over the next few days to complete the H&S aspects and make sure it's good to go for our first session in the new space THIS SUNDAY (24 May) at 3pm.

3pm until 5pm: Our traditional “drop-in”. £10 the session.
3pm COMPULSORY group warm-up (please don’t be late)
3:30 until 5pm taught/supervised groups, the exact session we run will depend on who turns up and what groups we put together on the day.
I guess this session will be absolutely crammed with lots of people who are desperate to get back in the air so we may need to limit things a bit simply to keep us all safe.

5pm until 8pm: Experienced/Signed off aerialists training. £5 per hour or part hour.
Again, we are likely to be very busy, particularly between 5pm and 6pm and we may need to limit activities as we get used to our new rig.

 

The Rig is Being Installed!

The rig has been bought!  It is going to be installed on May 19th and May20th.  We need volunteers to help put it up so if you want to help give us a word on facebook or email us at info@camcircus.org.  Aerial is almost here again!

 

Update on Club Juggling in the Hall

Club juggling is now fine in the Church Hall as we can put mats down to stop the clubs dropping on the floor.  This is necessary as the floor is particularly delicate.  Though soon we'll be back in the Church!

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.

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.
