Run away and join the circus... for a day or two, at least.

Hidden away in the sensible business district of London, near Liverpool Street, The Circus Space hosts courses in all types of circus performance, from half-day taster courses to the UK's only degree level circus arts qualification.

Provided you are physically fit, it doesn't matter if you've never been near a trapeze or a pair of baggy clown trousers in your life; everyone is welcome to try.

Areas covered include acrobatics (tumbling and balancing), static and flying trapeze, clowning, juggling, dance and movement, stilt-walking and tightrope walking, amongst others.

Maybe you're too old to learn contortion, but you never know...

circus skills association with the devil.

Dear Circus school,

my name is kascia, i am 14 years old and currently in class 8 at the moray steiner school, north scotland.In class 8 we have to do an independent project and i chose to do mine on the Circus. One of the areas I am looking into is why circus skills have associations with the devil, such as the devil sticks, the diabolo and any other associated equipment. I would be very grateful for any infomasion or further details you could give me.

thank you

Hi Magdalene - Unfortunately World Reviewer doesn't run circus school courses, but hopefully one of our readers will be able to shed some light on your request.

contortion lessons in london may be given as i have asked a female called iona the contortion whether she does lessons and she replied yes and is going to reply to me on the price and venue.

go on her website and contact her maybe she might start doing group lessons.
