Family Circus

Foundation course for children from 5 years and their adults

  • For families who lift each other

    Become stronger as a family while having fun together! In Family Circus, children, youths and adults train together and test all the circus disciplines. Our skilled circus educators help you explore the possibilities for adults and children to practice circus arts together.

    Who’s family?

    By family, we mean kindreds and relatives of all kinds. It can be mom, dad, grandfather, godmother, aunt, cousins or close friends. You know best yourselves!

    The courses are aimed at children and adults from the age of five. We divide the groups based on the children's age, from 5 years to older teenagers. If your family does not fit into our age groupings, you can choose the group that comes closest.

    Family booking & price

    At least one adult and one child go together and must be booked at the same time. The course fee is per person regardless of whether you are an adult or a child. Your place on the course is reserved when the adult has booked their spot.

  • Age: from 5 years, older children and teenagers are also welcome. Groups after the youngest child's age.

The course contains

  • Acrobatics

    Acrobatics is one of the cornerstones of circus and contains many different disciplines. However, when we refer to acrobatics in the courses, we usually mean doing somersaults, handstands and performing various tricks on the floor.

    Partner acrobatics

    In partner acrobatics, two or more people collaborate in lifting, balancing, throwing and catching each other. We call those who lift "undermen" and those who are getting lifted "flyers".

    Juggling

    Juggling can be throwing balls or clubs into the air and balancing feathers or sticks with plates on the body. Many jugglers call themselves object manipulators.

  • Tightrope walking

    There are many different types of lines, ropes and wires you can walk on: high, low, tight or slack. Many use long poles to help maintain balance. Balancing on a rope is often combined with acrobatics and dance.

    Aerial acrobatics

    An aerial acrobat performs tricks using, for example, a trapeze, rope, ring or silks. The tricks can consist of swinging, balancing and moving between different poses.
