Good to know:

  • We have a closed studio learning environment - no observers are permitted in the space during class.

  • We do not hold make-up classes.

  • In order to participate in class, students must be wearing comfortable, tight fitting clothing that is not restrictive. Most apparatuses are more comfortable with pants vs. shorts. Loose clothing, or clothing that is not meant to go upside down (skirts, dresses, etc.) will get in the way. Clothing with zippers, metal or plastic on them are not allowed to be worn for class as these cause damage to the apparatuses.

  • If your child has long hair, it must be tied up and out of their face.

  • Students MUST bring a water bottle.

  • Participants must remove any and all jewelry. Earrings may only be left in if a piercing is still healing and the jewelry cannot be removed.

  • Students must arrive masked in order to participate in class. We are not able to accommodate students with mask exemptions. 

  • Please read and understand our policies prior to your purchase.

Our program is designed and run with the intention of being an inclusive and positive environment for every student.

We love hearing from you about anything we can do to make your child feel comfortable, confident, and seen in our classes.

If any member of your family ever feels unsafe or disrespected under our roof, please don't hesitate to contact us at info@islandcircusspace.com

Circus Introductions

Come and explore circus for the first time! These classes will acquaint your child with our space, and introduce them to the basic shapes we use on Aerial Hammock and Trapeze. We will also use a variety of juggling equipment, and try out some balancing and rolling to tap into their body awareness and creative curiosity. Circus Introductions classes can be a stepping stone to our Circus Fundamentals classes, or just a fun thing to try out as you discover more about what your little one likes to do. Either way, we can't wait to meet you! 

Note: Students ages 2-4 will be joined by a parent/guardian for the duration of their class.

Circus Intermediate

 

This class is for students with a foundation of circus-specific experience, wishing to elevate their skills. Students in our intermediate classes are ready to transition from aerial hammock to aerial silks, and will also work on trapeze and aerial hoop. Students will improve their juggling and explore partner acrobatics, group pyramids, and hand balancing. Our intermediate classes build on a foundation of physical competency and integrate physical storytelling skills, creative play, and theatricality. Students in Circus Intermediate classes must be eager to learn and ready to push themselves to new and exciting heights.

 

Prerequisites: Parents of students enrolled in a session of Circus Fundamentals classes will receive a level recommendation email after each session which will alert them if they are ready to move into a Circus Intermediate class.

Focus Program


The Focus Program is Island Circus Space's pre-professional circus program aimed to help students find their full potential as circus artists. Students who advance to the Focus program have developed an independent work ethic and are proficient in the disciplines they favour. Focus students will elevate their technique and gain skills in act development and performance. Students who enroll in the Focus Program also gain access to our full adult schedule of classes, and may choose to purchase adult class passes even if they are not yet 16 years old. 


Prerequisites: Parents of students enrolled in a session of Circus Intermediate classes will receive a level recommendation email after each session which will alert them if they are ready to move into the Focus Program.
