The Gorilla Circus is operating in one of London’s glorious green inner-city spaces and are offering you the chance to become a pro on the flying trapeze! Students will be eased into the process, practicing simple tricks on the lower bars and gradually moving up and onto the flying trapeze. Depending on how many classes your child takes, by the end of the summer their skillset on the trapeze could be very advanced. The great thing is your child can still visit the Gorilla Circus once Summer is up. Who knows, maybe they could be in the Cirque du Soleil next year!
