London Youth Circus

Coronavirus update

The National Centre for Circus reopened to the London Youth Circus on the Monday 7 September. 

Due to COVID we have significant safety measures in place that have restricted how we usually run our London Youth Circus.  

These include staggered start times, training bubbles, cleaning periods before, during and after classes, mandatory mask wearing and temperature checks.  We also have sanitiser and hand washing stations throughout the building. 

Who it's for

Young people aged 11-21 years who are interested in taking their circus skills further through progressive and focused training.  We take students based on future potential as well as existing experience. Several of our Diploma and BA Hons students have come through the London Youth Circus.

What you can do

Due to COVID and the restrictions in place, we are unable to offer a regular programme of activities on our London Youth Circus. During Term 1, our focus will be on floor based activities including Handstands, Juggling, Manipulation, Tightwire, Unicycle, Globe and Rolla Bola.

From the 8th November, we will reintroducing our discipline specific classes on Sundays ONLY. 

This means that existing LYC students can return to training their disciplines (Silks, Static, Acrobatics, Rope, Juggling or Tightwire) on Sundays.

However our supporting classes during the week will remain floor based.

Applications

Due to restrictions imposed through COVID19, we will have strict capacity control in our spaces, and this is impacting how we will run our programmes.  Until this is resolved we will not be auditioning for our London Youth Circus.

It is our aim to reinstate the auditions once we can open up the building to more young people.
