Welcome to Pole and Aerial Fit Circus Academy

North Staffordshire’s Circus arts centre. We specialise in classes for adults and children for aerial (silks, hoop, trapeze, cube, fly pole, net), pole, aerial yoga, stretch, dance and circus skills. Some classes are also available at Studio 22 in Crewe, Cheshire.



We provide a variety of in-house party packages for adults and kids six years and older. Kids' circus parties are exciting and entertaining, featuring both aerial and ground-based performances on our hoops, silks, poles, and *trapeze (*available exclusively at our Longton studio). Parties for adults are ideal for any occasion where having fun is the focus. Pole, aerial, chair, aerial yoga, hula hoop, and mixed options are available. You will be offered a range of techniques, stances, and dance steps to put together for a short routine, depending on the party you have chosen.

The party begins with a basic warm-up to prepare your body for the main session. Any theme can be chosen for a party, from superheroes to throwback to the 1980s; kids typically choose the traditional circus theme and are allowed to dress accordingly. Bring phones and cameras to record the celebrations!
Parties start from £150 for an hour for up to 12 attendees. Extra time can be booked for an extra £25 per half an hour for the party to stay for food/cake in our fabulous reception area which has plenty of table/chairs. (*all food and catering must be supplied by you) Pole Party deposits are half the full amount, with the remaining full amount payable no later than a week before the party.
Pole parties deposits must be received in advance of the chosen date and are non-refundable.

Attempted Level 1 Hoop and Silks for the first time with my twin sister, we had the best time! There was so much packed into the alloted time and yet we still had the time to progress through the class with creating little choeographies. The instructor Kirsty was just a delight, very friendly, talented and just a lovely person making you feel like you attempt anything! Thank you Kirsty for helping us and making sure we had the best out of the class we also came away feeling like we had done an ab workout after laughing so much - such a lovely group of people!

My daughter absolutely loves it here and I can see each week she is growing with confidence! The girls here are wonderful with her, and make her feel at ease. Just looking around I can see they treat all the kids here like there own kids and that's what I love about this place, it has a very friendly feel to it! My daughter asks each day if she can go and to me that is a brilliant sign! The packages they offer are fab and great value for money and the fact you can book on to any session for their age range during the week is great, it's very flexible around our work and family life :) xx

My daughter had her first class yesterday. She was made to feel welcome straightaway. Lily (teacher) introduced herself as soon as we arrived, was very friendly and approachable which helped my daughter relax and she loved the whole class and can’t wait for next time. Highly recommended.

Attended aerial yoga today after seeing older women on tv doing it. I am 67 and was a bit concerned if it would suit me as I have a few health concerns but none listed as I would be unsuitable. Rebecca helped me through it and supported me with any difficulties I had and other attendees were supportive too. I am unfit but I did find it easier than normal yoga which I hadn’t done for donkeys years. Couldn’t believe it when I managed to hang upside down how great it felt to relieve the stress on my back and relaxing in the end was lovely. There were of course a couple of exercises which stretched me a bit but said I had had enough and stopped which is ok as they don’t want you to go too far if you are uncomfortable. My friends and family couldn’t believe i did it. I can’t recommend it enough, give it a go.
