What can I expect in a class?

Do I need to be really fit and flexible to start circus classes?

You do not need to have done previous exercise to start circus.


Is there an age limit? Is it too late for me to start circus?

What should I wear to class?

Make sure you wear suitable clothing—comfortable and flexible. Most people choose to wear leggings, shorts and a t-shirt. Tracksuit bottoms with a t-shirt—either fitted or one you can tuck in—are ideal. Some people choose to wear a leotard/unitard underneath—this provides extra padding and is ideal. Combat trousers, baggy clothes, shorts/trousers with pockets on the side of the leg are not suitable. Jeans are only to be worn for Chinese pole. Outdoor footwear is not permitted in the training space, and most activities are barefoot. However a clean pair of indoor trainers/dance shoes can be worn inside for some activites.


Do you have car parking?

Yes. We have car parking space directly outside our entrance. During the day please stick to our parking bays as other businesses are operating; in the evenings further parking bays are available.

Cardiff Bus routes 1 or 2 stop at nearby Glass Avenue, weekdays until 19:00. We also have a Facebook car share group for members to organise shared travel.
