What to Expect

During our Intro to Circus Youth classes, we provide a safe and supportive environment where children can learn and grow while having tons of fun. Our experienced instructors are not only skilled circus performers but also passionate educators dedicated to nurturing young talent. Here's what your child can expect to learn:


Acrobatics is at the heart of circus arts. In this class, our talented instructors will guide your child through a series of exercises and techniques aimed at developing flexibility, strength, and agility. Through engaging activities, children will learn foundational acrobatic moves, such as rolls, handstands, cartwheels, and more. We prioritize safety and ensure that each child progresses at their own pace.


Juggling is a skill that combines coordination, concentration, and dexterity. Our juggling lessons start with the basics, teaching children how to juggle scarves, then progress to juggling balls and other objects. This fun activity helps improve hand-eye coordination, focus, and perseverance. By the end of the course, your child will be dazzling audiences with their newfound juggling abilities.

Tightrope Walking

Walking the tightrope is an exciting challenge that requires precision and balance. In our class, children will learn how to conquer their fear of heights and master the art of walking on a tightrope. Under the guidance of our experienced instructors, they will develop core strength, body control, and a sense of confidence while navigating the thin line. Safety equipment and expert supervision are always provided.

Benefits of Circus Arts

Participating in circus arts offers numerous benefits to children, both physically and mentally. Some of the key advantages include:

Physical Fitness

Circus arts provide an excellent form of exercise, as they require full-body movement, strength, and flexibility. Regular participation in our Intro to Circus Youth class can help children improve their cardiovascular health, develop stronger muscles, and enhance overall physical fitness levels.

Motor Skills Development

The various activities involved in circus arts help children refine their fine and gross motor skills. Whether it's balancing on a tightrope or juggling objects, these exercises require precise muscle control, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness. Such development has a positive impact on their overall motor skills.

Confidence Building

As children acquire new skills and conquer challenges, their self-confidence naturally grows. Circus arts provide an empowering environment where children can explore their abilities in a supportive and non-competitive setting. This boosts their self-esteem, helps them overcome fears, and nurtures a positive mindset.

Creativity and Imagination

At GIRL Studio, we believe in fostering creativity and imagination. Circus arts encourage children to think outside the box, explore new ideas, and express themselves through movement. Our Intro to Circus Youth class offers a platform for children to embrace their artistic side and let their imaginations soar.
