Performance Classes

How do you create a character, or develop an initial idea through to a finished performance piece? What do you do if something goes wrong on stage (as it will), & hold the audiences attention from the moment you walk on stage? 

Each 8-week session will focus on a different aspect of performance, & though no previous experience is necessary, students should be prepared to work towards becoming stronger performers.




The very popular Cyr wheel has taken the circus world by storm. This mesmerizing combination of acrobats, balance and dance, all while moving in a metal hoop, is taught by Christine Konrad, a highly experienced teacher and performer.

Suitable for ages teens and up, come experience the  physicality and beauty of the Cyr wheel in motion.

Where to find us!


Halifax Circus, located in downtown Halifax, is a non-profit cooperative of professional circus artists and teachers. In 2015 we celebrated out 10th Anniversary with a series of special shows, new classes and workshops, and guest performers.

Our teachers have performed with the Cirque du Soleil and Ringling Brothers, and taught and performed at festivals in Singapore, Hong Kong, Europe, India, the U.S., Alaska, Africa, Mexico, Costa Rica, the Yukon and across Canada. Check out our classes‎ and be part of the excitement at Halifax Circus.

We have a threefold mission: to practice and perform circus work at the highest level, to teach those skills to students at our school, and to work with youth at risk through our social circus initiatives.
