Participants work on a variety of mixed circus skills including balancing, juggling, manipulation, aerial, clowning and acrobatics.

In Flea Circus children are supported in:

  • Practicing positive social interaction – learning to share and to wait for turns
  • Experiencing situations of collaboration - leading and following
  • Developing a sense of belonging to a group
  • Building a foundation in circus and recognising the props of each circus art
  • Developing greater body awareness
  • Becoming comfortable in front of an audience
  • Increasing focus, concentration, balance and coordination
  • Enjoying safe risk-taking within a secure environment


All of our members have the opportunity to take part in performances – from theatre shows and big top tent shows to street performances and parades. Participation is strictly voluntary and tremendously fun!

How to get involved:

After a very successful pilot programme of circus classes in Tuam in 2022, Galway Community Circus will again be hosting classes in Tuam in 2023. The new year will see a further step taken toward a permanent second space for Galway Community Circus in Tuam, and we will have limited classes while we work on a suitable space for our members.

Registration is currently open to the public for Youth Circus classes in Tuam for winter/spring term 2023.

Classes begin the week of 19th January after the holiday break and will run for 18 weeks. The cost is 158 euros.
