“My Daughter celebrated her 7th birthday last month and man oh man totally worth it!! My daughter goes to circus school on Saturday morning and she wanted to show her friends how much she loves the place and decided to have her birthday there!! There were 24 kids that attended and the staff handled them so well! We were the last party of the day and the staff still managed to have the energy to show the kids all the different equipment used at circus school and even show the kids their skill!!”

“The party was overall great, I’d give 10 stars if I could – very well organized, the instructors were fantastic, they did a great job keeping the kids engaged and focused.”

Mixed aged parties

We understand that families will often have older or younger children who straddle our cut-off ages. Please read the following policy on mixed-age parties to learn how we can best accommodate you and your family!

Younger Kids attending (5 – 14) Youth Parties: If you’ve booked a Youth Party (ages 5+) and have younger kids (< 5) who will be attending, they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while on the floor. They are welcome to participate in the same activities as the older kids as long as a parent or guardian is around to supervise them. For very young children (< 3), we can put out toys for them to play with. They must also be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Coaches will be focusing on the older group and will not be able to supervise younger children who are using the toys.

Older Kids attending (0 – 4) Toddler Parties: If you’ve got older participants who are attending your Toddler party (eg. siblings), they are welcome to participate in the activities. Our toddler parties are run as free play and we put out many toys for them to play with. Coaches play and interact with the younger kids but are also more than happy to show older participants props or skills on available equipment. We want to accommodate you as best as possible to bring you an amazing birthday party. However, our coaches’ main focus will always be on the age group of the birthday you have booked.

What to bring

Feel free to bring as much food, drinks and decorations that you’d like. Please note that you will be able to enter 15 minutes prior to your party start time. We start the party right on time, so the children will be back at the party area 75 min after your start time. This gives you 1.5hr to get ready.

* Please note we do not have a refrigerator for cakes and alcohol is not permitted

What to wear

Guests should wear comfortable clothes to the circus school. Please keep in mind that you are at the circus, so you will likely go upside down and run around at some point! Pants and shorts with a shirt that can be tucked in, is recommended. Please ensure that your guests wear clean socks, as no shoes are allowed on our blue matts. Finally, metal can hurt your child and the equipment, so please do not wear watches, necklaces, or any other metal on the floor (small earrings are acceptable).
