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 .
You can stay in touch via our facebook page or by subscribing to our mailing list. Just add your email address in the box below.
As it is the weekend of the British Juggling Convention lots of jugglers will be away. This weekend there is no Saturday session and the Sunday session is just running 3pm to 5pm. Youth circus is running as usual.
NEW SITE, NEW TIME... on Sunday 4th January 2015 as a one off juggling (and related skills) will be on from 5.30 til 7.30 at the University Sports Centre (West Cambridge Site off Madingley Road). We are in Studio 2, upstairs on the right. For directions, and centre details see the centre website, http://www.sport.cam.ac.uk/facilities/CambridgeSportsCentre/ .
As the church (not the hall) is out of use for winter, there will be no daytime practice until Spring.
Unfortunately, club juggling in the church hall has been found to damage the floor and so club juggling will no longer happen here. Sorry, about this. (Also, use your judgement and don't use any props that may damage the floor, e.g rings and heavy staffs.) From now on, club juggling will be in the Church. So, tonight, Tuesday 28th October there will be no club juggling as we don't have access to the Church today. The church will be open for day time practice from 2-5 on wednesday and friday. We will post and up date any future opening times asap.
The Return of Weekly Practice: The church will be open this week Wednesday and Friday 2.00 - 5.00 (£2 per hour).
Hello hello hello!
We have been nail bitingly close to delivering news of our movements to all for some time now.....so.....WE ARE MOVING INTO THE CHURCH!!!!!
Timetable for November and December (there will be some alterations over the Christmas and New Year period.)
We are still in a transitional stage whilst we await the installation of our brand new aerial rig but we are currently offering the following sessions:
In the church hall:
Tuesdays 7.30-9.30 Conditioning & general practice (but no clubs or anything that may cause damage to the floor please!)
Saturdays 5.00-7.00 As above
Sundays 1.00-3.00 Youth Circus (see CCC Youth Circus group)
3.00-8.00 Conditioning & Practice
In the church:
NO SESSIONS in the church for winter, too cold. See annoucements and facebook for alternative sessions.
Sundays 5.00-8.00 General Practice (Finding an alternative venue)
Acrobalance classes continue in Saffron Walden
Payment for sessions: Payment will remain at £2 an hour for every session except Youth Circus which remains at £8 per session. There will be no weekly passes. The designated leader of each session will ask attendees to sign a register and will also collect the money due.
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.
If you are a juggler, poi spinner or contact juggler then Sundaynights are 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.
We regret that we cannot immediately run aerial courses or practice sessions. We are looking into the feasibility of purchasing a modular rig that could be assembled for limited sessions in the Church Hall and then extended to provide excellent aerial opportunities in the church at a later date. We hope that aerialists will take advantage of the aerial conditioning sessions in the hall during the summer.
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). The Wednesday class is mixed ability and suitable for beginners as well as those with a bit more experience. If you have previous experience it is still worth coming down as many experienced free runners hang out and are involved with CCC. Wednesday classes will continue to run from 6 - 8pm meeting outside the Howard Mallet Building on the corner of York St, New St and Sturton St. Note: Movement Training is no longer run through CCC. See the movement training facebook page for up to date information.

These classes are open to those who are 16+ and need to be attended in pairs. Classes only run during Term Time and take place in SAFFRON WALDEN. 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
Our new temporary base will be in St George's Church Hall, Chesterfield Road (down Fraser Road, off Milton Road), Cambridge CB4 1LN. We have booked practice time here for August and September.
