A non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC)

Our mission

Our mission is to inspire, educate and to equip others through Circus skill based workshops. We love to create amazingly fun and enjoyable learning experiences. As STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) ambassadors we love holistic approaches and to fuse science, logical thinking and choreography with physical training. This is why we love Circus Skills!

For schools

With a heart to help children, we can expand and diversify any PE lesson and provide high quality after-school activities. We love to see confidence built up and can run workshops and events, and even help create curriculum.

For communities

Our dream is to one day create York’s first Circus Skill Centre. Then everybody and anybody can benefit. We are proud to be a non-profit community-interest company designed to serve and build community through our workshops.

For private events

Creating life-long memories, we can create a highly specific tailored event for you. From birthday parties to hen nights and stag do workshops, we can give you an experience to remember.

For corporate events

We can create team and confidence building events that release stress and help up your organisations synergy and performance.

‘The children were really engaged with Circus Skills - they were able to achieve new skills very quickly which encouraged the children. The skills that the children were shown were at a level they could achieve. All the children were focused on the skills being taught.’

‘A great time was had by tenants at Restore (a charity which houses those who would otherwise be homeless) at our Christmas Party’. Many of our tenants are vulnerable and lacking in confidence, but Stuart’s patient and warm approach, combined with starting things off very simply, meant that a great time was had by all. We would definitely recommend Stuart to others.’

"Thank you for your help with our team building event - the activity went down really well with everyone and staff have been telling me how they are now teaching their children to spin plates and planning it as a Christmas activity."
