Learn to Trapeze with Gorilla Circus School

Gorilla Circus – Aerial Circus and Flying Trapeze classes in London.


Whether it’s the simple things like having a catcher guaranteed in every one of our flying trapeze classes, or getting that complex circus act or flying effect into your show on time and on budget, in the 4 years that Gorilla Circus has been operating we have established a strong reputation for reliability, quality and safety.

If you ask any of our staff members why they do what they do, you will get one answer: because they love it. Circus is not just a job or a hobby for us, it’s a way of life. We try hard to bring this enthusiasm and passion to everything we do, if you think we are exaggerating just ask our clients and our students, some of which have been with us since day one!


Anyone can come and learn to fly in one of our two hour classes, our youngest students are 8, our oldest (so far) 78! Students start with a warm up then move on to practice a simple trick on our low bar. They then attempt the trick on the Flying Trapeze and towards the end of the class get caught by a catcher on a separate swinging bar. Most of our classes are run on a one-off basis, the more classes you take the more advanced tricks you can perform! If you truly are addicted to flying you may be able to join our weekly intermediate class!
