At Wonderful World of Circus, expert tumblers and aerial artists tutor students ages of all ability levels 5 and older in the expressive power of circus arts. In the Recreational Circus and Gymnastics class, kids build physical fitness by practicing floor and aerial gymnastics, trying acrobatics, and throwing trampolines. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced wee ones attempt scaled exercises, from somersaults and handstands to standing atop balance balls. Tykes build coordination, strength, and flexibility, which can boost performance in almost any other sport or physical activity. Those who catch on quickly can try more challenging things such as handsprings and building a five-person human pyramid with only three people.
Ninety-minute adult classes include Introduction to Circus Arts, which acquaints aspiring artists with impressive circus skills such as trapeze swinging, tightrope walking, and clown dodging to build a foundation for more advanced classes. Grownups can also work on overall fitness in the Women’s or Men’s Circus Fitness classes that build flexibility and core strength while expanding spatial awareness.
Wonderful World of Circus
Clowns juggle balls, trained poodles assemble into a line, and aerial gymnasts soar on the trapeze—and that’s all before the bride cuts the cake. Wonderful World of Circus’s artists unfurl high-flying spectacles at weddings, as well as at birthday parties and corporate events. From acrobats to tightrope walkers, their local and international performers showcase feats of derring-do at both private events and shows for the public, which combine acrobatics and dance to tell stories.
Extending a hand through the fourth wall, Wonderful World of Circus brings kids and adults into the circus to learn these skills for themselves. Trapeze bars, silks, and rings hang down from the training centre's walls. Here, colourful mats and padded floors cushion students as professional circus performers guide them through moves like flipping through the air. Back on the ground, instructors teach other skills such as break dancing and juggling. Aside from its standard classes, Wonderful World of Circus also hosts birthday parties, children's camps, and school field trips.
