School of Larks is here!!!

School of Larks is a rural based circus school which endeavors to provide activities to rural areas which are usually only available in Cities. We currently offer Circus skills classes in Nailsworth and Stroud. We think that it is important to make these activities available to as many people as possible as they have great educational physical and psychological benefits. Circus skills develop self confidence, coordination, balance, flexibility, strength and body control. Circus skills are an art but also a sport therefore they combine physical exercise and creativity in a very effective way.

Details of classes coming very soon!
