Circus Skills

Jeff Davis with circus rig

Our popular Circus Skills classes started in June 2015 and are for adults and children of all abilities.

A specialist rig for aerial hoop, static trapeze, corde lisse (rope) and silks was installed at our smaller gym at the Basildon Sporting Village in May 2015.


The times of our sessions are detailed on the poster above. On our course qualified coaches teach the National Centre for Circus Arts’ curriculum on Aerial Circus Skills.

Each student will do three weeks on the four different circus disciplines and will have the opportunity to perform in various displays.

The project was initiated by senior advisory coach and former Olympic gymnast Jeff Davis (pictured above with the brand new rig).

The coaching team is led by Cara Noble and she is supported by Rebecca Moss, Rebecca Humphries and Erika Poole.
