Children's circus classes

Halifax Circus offers an hour long introduction to juggling and circus skills on Saturday mornings. Students will learn object manipulation (juggling clubs, scarves, balls, diablos and devil sticks) and balance (unicycle, tight rope, rolabola). Everyone works at their own pace with attention given to strengths and interests. 



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, Europe, India, the U.S., Africa, Mexico, the Yukon and across Canada. Check out our classes‎ and be part of the excitement of our 10th year 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.
