Skylight Circus Arts

We run 3 sessions for children and young people 5-8,  8-13 & 13 -19 years old. These sessions focuses on developing the circus skills of this age range in as many areas as possible, be it juggling, stilts or the aerial trapeze!

The sessions follows a structure ensuring that everyone gains an eclectic mixture of circus skill and practise, as well as having as much fun as possible.

We also run Sky High which is an school activity for children with disabilities. Skylight offers two sessions with Sky High, one for children aged 5-11 & 11-18.

Sky High promotes inclusiveness, activity and social awareness for children of any disability. As well as teaching structured circus skills, we also use an aerial harness in these sessions to swing the young people through the room. This session is funded by Rochdale Services for Children with disabilities. (young participants must have a disability and be a Rochdale resident)
