Dublin Circus Project are proud to offer a training facility for the multitude of art forms under the vast medium of circus.
The Dublin Circus Centre provides a much needed platform for circus artists in Dublin to hone their skills through open training, to teach circus classes and workshops and run endlessly entertaining events. Whether you’re just starting out, a hobbyist or a seasoned pro the Dublin Circus Centre is open to all.
Equipped with crash mats, a wide variety of circus props, aerial rigging and apparatus (those seeking to train aerial must be Aerial Approved) and a 6.5 metre high ceiling, we provide open training and circus skills classes on a weekly basis. Along with our main space there is a studio equipped with a dance floor and mirrors, a mezzanine with a kitchen, seating area, office and bathroom, and a storage room.
The Dublin Circus Centre is open during set hours throughout the week. Anyone can join us during our OPEN hours while our Monthly Members can avail of access outside of these hours (for further info on this please contact us).
