Classes and workshops
Children are offered regular leisure classes where participants, accompanied by experienced instructors, acquire general physical skills as well as individual circus disciplines. Children will improve their skills in juggling, their ability to balance and focus, acting skills, agility, and cooperation skills – useful not only in circus, but also in life. These sessions are organised during the academic year from September to May and are suitable for children aged 7 to 17.

The following training programmes are available from September 2020:
By getting familiar with various circus disciplines, children are enabled to develop their physical fitness as well as their mental abilities in a comprehensive way. Children of different ages take part in the classes, which makes it easier to learn individual disciplines (such as partner acrobatics and balance techniques), reducing the sense of competition among peers.
Each session includes time for communication with the educator, warm-up, and general fitness exercises, evolving games, learning the basics of each discipline, cool-down and stretching exercises.
Location and timetable:
Saturdays, 11.00–12.30 at Zeļļu street 25 with Dmitrijs Pudovs, teacher of the Riga Circus School
Fee: 42 EUR per calendar month (regardless of attendance)
The maximum number of participants in the group: 15
