East Sussex School of Circus Arts
ESSCA is an international school, offering training courses dedicated exclusively to circus arts. Based in Hailsham, East Sussex, we offer a Full Vocational Course, of highly physical/technical training through acrobatics, dance, acting and performance, combined with circus arts.
We also provide afternoon classes after school hours. For more information please below at the timetable.
Circus school runs during term time to teach children of all ages, and adults too, a wide range of circus performance skills including acrobatics and aerial skills using a trapeze, hoop, silks, ropes, etc. These classes are a great alternative to traditional sports as they allow children and young people to build confidence while increasing their strength, fitness and flexibility as well as socialising with other students in a fun and supportive environment.
For adults, it’s an interesting alternative form of exercise which could lead to discovering a new skill and even open the door to new opportunities. Because our school is attached to our entertainment agency, adults who discover a talent for circus skills can find work opportunities with us as professional performers.
