YOUTH PROGRAMS

Activities at CCCS are a great way to get kids up and moving, and to foster their creative side. Our sessions are not only fun, but are also great exercise - building muscle and flexibility, along with confidence, trust, and teamwork. Children walk away from our sessions feeling empowered and ready to tackle anything!

 

While children ages six and up may sign up for any of the all-levels sessions offered at our school, we have specialized youth programs for kids aged 6-16. Check out our youth class types below and book a drop-in class here or a workshop or All-Day Circus Experience here.  If you need more guidance, please contact youthprograms@capcitycircus.com and subscribe to our youth newsletter!

ALL DAY CIRCUS EXPERIENCE (ADCE)

A great way to spend a day off school, full of exercise and fun! Our All Day Circus Experiences for Kids (ADCE) are held on common Monday school holidays (e.g. Columbus Day) from 8:30am-4:00pm, and include lunch and snacks.

 

The ADCE is a great way for kids to try a variety of the apparatus we teach, all in one go! Children will take on flying trapeze, trampoline, lyra, silks, juggling, static trapeze, tumbling and more!

YOUTH CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS

Are you interested in trying out circus arts? We offer drop-in trampoline classes for youth, which are a great way to get started on your circus journey. 

 

For youth who are ready for more consistent learning, try our youth workshops in Flying Trapeze or Aerial Arts.  Workshops meet weekly for a month at a time.

SUMMER CAMPS

No experience necessary.

Campers learn aerial arts, ground acrobatics, and flying trapeze. They then choose a skill to create their act for a Friday afternoon performance.

Longer programs are available for intermediate and advanced youth students.

 

Summer camps sell out quickly, but you can review and sign up for our remaining options HERE.

YOUTH PERFORMANCE TROUPE

Are you ready to take your skills to the next level? This program is for our most dedicated youth students. The troupe practices Tuesdays and Thursdays and students commit to a semester at a time, including a performance at the end of each semester.

 

The Youth Performance Troupe includes skill building and creative act development in the aerial arts – static trapeze, silks, lyra, and Spanish web, as well as ground acrobatics and juggling. Students will build strength, flexibility, and aerial awareness while gaining confidence, creativity, and teamwork skills! Applications are required although no previous circus or aerial experience is necessary.

GYMNASTICS FOR LITTLE KIDS Recommended ages: 3-10

Gymnastics is a fantastic foundation for the circus arts! Teaching body awareness, control, fundamental movements, and safe practices on equipment, gymnastics at CCCS is the perfect way to introduce your little kids to acrobatics.

 

We currently offer parties only, so reach out on our events page if you’d like to schedule a circus party with a gymnastics component (ages 6+) or a gymnastics-only party (ages 3+). We can’t wait to host your little ones and witness their joy as they discover just how capable they really are!
