Those who take part in circus activities can reasonably expect to increase their strength, flexibility, and overall physical fitness; sharpen their gross and fine motor coordination; and, develop the ability to “present and perform” circus arts.

Our non-competitive, performance-based circus classes offer school-aged children comprehensive education in many areas of physical development.

For example, learning to juggle sharpens eye-hand coordination; unicycle, acrobalance and tight-wire develop core-stability; swinging trapeze and the other aerial arts (aerial silk, static trapeze, aerial hoop) promote overall physical strength and flexibility; trampoline training refines kinesthetic awareness and spatial orientation. Circus arts are guaranteed to be some of the most fun and highly educational after-school activities,

Combining different physical – artistic disciplines, from scenic arts to circus arts, in order to put them on stage and share our dreams with women, men, and especially children who enjoy our shows,” Galenao recounts. “From that moment, our idea of sharing our artistic knowledge and having the first circus training space in Dubai was born.” ”
