Had a lot of fun. Both sets of cheeks sore, one from laughing the other from the exercise. ;)

What You'll Get


Without circuses, troubled clowns would band together in street gangs of pie-toting ruffians, organizing wig shop heists and lamenting their inability to grow impressive mustaches. Be part of the solution with today's Groupon: for $15, you get an intro to circus class at Vancouver Circus School (up to a $30 value) in New Westminster.

Helmed by the former acrobatic and artistic coach for Cirque du Soleil, Vancouver Circus School trains big-top aspirants and acquaints the circus curious with all things carnivalesque. The 90-minute teen and adult intro to circus course, or the 90-minute kids course, focuses on the fundamentals of the big show. As anti-frowny clown-tamers bounce beginners through the basics of juggling, trampoline, and static trapeze, the miracle of transitory flight engulfs senses with more gusto than a 3-D food fight. Students also learn unorthodox methods of curtain rod strength testing during introduction into aerial silks—a form of aerial acrobatics where performers are suspended from ribbons.

Besides being more fun than running up an escalator backwards, the courses are an excellent way to strength train and improve flexibility, fitness, and spatial awareness. Classes are held on Saturdays; check the schedule for availability at the New Westminster location. Reserve a spot at least five days in advance.

About Vancouver Circus School


Building strength and flexibility doesn’t have to be boring. At the Vancouver Circus School, classes allow you to exercise your artistic side as your try your hand at challenging workouts on the tightwire, trapeze, or aerial silks that hang from the ceiling. The All-Around Circus program is the most comprehensive, allowing adults, teens, and even preschoolers to sample the different big-top arts. Students get to hone their trampoline-jumping and hand-balancing skills, which may grant them greater agility during workouts or heists in the Smithsonian’s heavily guarded bounce house. They’ll also be able to acquaint themselves with the use of yo-yos and devil sticks.

Most of the classes are for recreational purposes, but students who want to take their skills to the next level can consider the school’s Ring Master program. During this program, they’ll commit to more training under the school’s top coaches to eventually transform into a professional circus artist.
