Open Training

Welcome to Open Training at the Vancouver Circus School! If you’re looking for a place to practice your aerial, acrobatic, or prop skills, or just want to work out in a unique environment, we’ve got you covered. Our training space offers a stunning view of the Fraser River that is sure to inspire you.

We offer several training areas, including the Aerial Studio, Chinese Pole, Tightwire & Slackline, Tumbling Track, Fitness & Strength Centre, and Stretching Studio.

*Some equipment may be unavailable during classes, camps or other events.

Open training sign up is done onsite, including single drop in’s, monthly membership.

Open training is closed on all statutory holidays.

September to June, open training is available Monday to Thursday from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Fridays 4:00pm – 8:00pm and on weekends from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Monthly members enjoy extended hours on weekdays, from 4:00 pm to 8:00pm.

For the months of July and August, the last week of December, and Spring break (last two weeks for March); weekday hours are from 4:00 pm to 8:00pm. Weekend hours are unaffected.

Monthly memberships are a perfect option for those who train here regularly and would like the option of dropping-in to train on weekday evenings. Full memberships include access to both the circus school and the strength centre, while Strength Centre Memberships (coming soon!) only provide access to the strength centre.
