Chance to learn acrobatic skills with Generation Circus

GENERATION Circus is delighted to have received £14,800 of National Lottery funding to run CAN DO CIRCUS:

It is a free aerial circus and performance training for anyone over 50 for one year – ending in a circus show!

CAN DO CIRCUS will start in mid April 2024, alongside a weekly programme of classes for adults and for children aged 6-16.

Generation Circus is based at Ware Drill Hall (Ware, Herts, SG12 9HP)

Generation Circus is a non-profit co-founded in 2023 by mother and daughter team, Emma Taylor and Maisy Taylor.

Emma and Maisy have a long background in contemporary circus and a passion for participatory and social circus.

They teach aerial circus at The National Centre for Circus Arts in London (which is one of Europe’s leading providers of circus education, based in a Victorian power station in Hoxton).

After recently moving to Harlow, Emma and Maisy want to bring the world of circus learning to Herts and Essex.

They have close working relationships with artists, colleagues, collaborators and friends working professionally in the UK and beyond, and will be inviting them to run one-off workshops and courses for Generation Circus.

Specialising in aerial circus (static trapeze, rope, aerial hoop and silks), Generation Circus provides weekly adult’s and children’s aerial classes, outreach and special projects, corporate workshops, birthday parties and workshops for hen dos! 
Social Circus is at the heart of their work. They believe that participating in circus can enrich and change lives and communities and they play an active part in the development of Social Circus and Youth Circus in the UK.

Ware Drill Hall is delighted to welcome circus to it’s space and Ware Town Council have supported Generation Circus with £500 towards buying crash mats.
