Weekly Circus Classes
Thank you so much for booking your child onto a trial for one of our classes in Harpenden we are SO excited to meet new members of the Showtime Circus Family! This welcome pack will hopefully answer any of your questions, but please do not hesitate to email if you have any further questions too! Our classes are jam packed full of fun, and there are a wide range of skills to be learnt.
Your circus teachers in Harpenden are Lionness Leanne and Astonishing Amy with assistants Aerial Eve, Silly Seahorse, Elegant Evelyn, Giddy Gazelle and Pan. All of our teachers are DBS and have up to date first aid and safeguarding certifications.
We are at:
Roundwood Park School,
There is parking at the venue.
If you do not wish for pictures/videos of your child to be put on Social media, PLEASE make this clear to the teacher upon drop off if you haven't already stated it on booking.
If you do, please add us on instagram/facebook (Jolly Jess facebook profile is for parents only!) so you can see what your children are getting up to!
Please dress your child in clothing suitable for moving in! We always say a t-shirt long enough to tuck in as we will be upside down for LOTS of the class or a leotard! Long sleeves and leggings are better.
Please keep the belongings you bring with you to a minimum, however, if the children are a little anxious/worried then they are absolutely welcome to bring a soft toy with them that reminds them of home so that they feel comfortable.
Pack a reusable water bottle as the children will need to be hydrated and well energised!
We are a NUT FREE ZONE due to allergies.
