At 7 Story Circus, we love what we do!

We're all about encouraging confidence, creativity, and physical fitness through circus arts in a safe, supportive, and non-competitive environment.

We offer classes, workshops, and performances in both Aerial and Circus Arts. 

  • ​​Aerial Arts classes focus on aerial fabric and aerial hoop disciplines.

  • ​Circus Arts classes include aerial silks, aerial hoop, rope and dance trapeze, as well as juggling & object manipulation, stilting, unicycle, balance & acro-balance, handstands & flexibility, and clown & performance skills.

    Workshops can be organized for school groups or special interest groups in our space or yours. Private lessons are also available upon request.

7 Story Circus is currently based out of Courtenay Recreation’s Lewis Centre from September through June, with summer workshops and performances across Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and beyond!
