We are thrilled to announce our new classes at The Higher Space for January - February 2017; we've got weekly Hoop and Silks classes for both adults and juniors, a new Open Practice session, and a new Bungee-Assisted Dance course - phew! The full schedule, and all booking and pricing details are on our Timetable page. You can get an early bird discount if you book by 18 December!
And back by popular demand is our Bungee-Assisted Dance / Vertical Wall combo weekend on 21-22 January. An open level workshop, it's the perfect option for people who want a concentrated aerial experience, and a fantastic opportunity to try out our two favourite harness techniques. All the details are on our Masterclasses page - it's not to be missed, just ask the participants who came in November:
I loved how much I was able to do.
Brilliant course, excellent teacher, fantastic weekend.
More people need to experience this!
We are absolutely delighted to welcome some new faces to our teaching team at The Higher Space, so now seems like a good time to introduce the tutors...
Kit is a dynamic, multi-skilled performer and circus teacher, with a passion for seeing his students learn and develop. After training and competing as a youth in gymnastics he developed a love for circus arts, and is skilled in performing aerial hoop, silks, acrobalance, stilt walking and straps amongst other techniques. Most recently he has taught acrobatics at the Arden School of Theatre and spent the summer working with the world famous Gifford Circus.
We are thrilled to welcome Kit as the newest member of the Wired team to teach our Junior Aerial Circus classes (Block 3 starts in January on Monday evenings – Hoop 5-6pm, Silks 6-7pm).
