Adult Classes

Classes at Greentop

 

Not only is Greentop a uniquely atmospheric venue (we are based in the former church of St. Thomas, Brightside, so the view from our hanging ropes in the rafters is fabulous) but we also have all the professional apparatus you will need and most importantly the best and most skilful teachers in the North of England.

Because we’ve been teaching circus skills for over twenty years we can provide a place where safety and daring happily coexist.
