Training Institution

  • Name
    Circomedia
  • About
    ircomedia was founded over ten years ago by physical theatre expert, Bim Mason and choreographer and performer Helen Crocker. It rose out of the ashes of Fooltime, Britain’s first ever circus school – and ever since has attracted students from all over the world. It is different from many circus schools as there is a heavy emphasis on combining traditional circus skills with physical theatre and creativity.


    A centre of excellence in its field Circomedia is an umbrella organisation incorporating a wide range of activities:

    Foundation Degree (FdA) in Contemporary Circus & Physical Performance
    A two year professional programme integrating circus and physical performance through practical training and applied theoretical research. This degree is run in partnership with Bath Spa University.

    Act Creation Course
    A 10 week course in creating and promoting a circus related act or physical theatre piece.

    Teacher Training Course
    This is a one year part-time course for students who have already completed a long term training course in circus skills.

    Two Year BTEC Course
    This two year course will provide a broad introduction and foundation in physical performance and circus skills.

    Part Time Evening Classes
    Circomedia has recently launched a programme of adult evening classes open to the general public. There's something for everyone from the complete beginner to the seasoned professional.
