This is a buzzing, well-established 1 hour weekly class for home-educated kids aged 8 years and upwards. "Sweet Circ-Ed" supplements your home ed curriculum by providing physical activity and education, performing arts, and learning / social skills such as focus, resilience and confidence. I teach a range of circus skills, including ground skills such as juggling and plate spinning as well as aerial hoop, silks or trapeze. Parents are welcome to stay and watch. The venue is the friendly and calming Yoga Life Studio in the Little Chelsea area of Eastbourne, just a few minutes walk from Eastbourne Station.

I am a qualified teacher with a particular interest in the personal and social benefits of engaging in any art form. I have undertaken Aerial instructor training with both Spin City and Nimble Arts, and have a particular fondness for teaching beginners’ trapeze. As a performer I am a storyteller and as an instructor I love helping both children and adults build strength and confidence progressing to eventually have the skills and confidence to perform themselves. I am known for my slightly confusing, slightly crazy warm up routines which encouraging you not to take yourself too seriously! I am a qualified children’s fitness instructor and head up our family-run business: Sweet Circus.
