Small World Theatre realises that it’s important for people to keep active and stimulated while we’re all responsibly staying at home during the coronavirus lockdown. Our Syrcas Byd Bychan trainers Jess and Hannah want to support our community of students to keep fit and focused on their aerial circus practice, ready for whenever we can all take to the air together again! This way, we hope to maintain the wonderful energy and joy of our usual classes, stay strong and resilient, and come out of this situation united in our support for one another. The true spirit of circus!

We will offer live online classes (Zoom) and an evolving library of recorded videos (Vimeo) to our existing students via a Facebook group and email list. We will also be posting video shorts on this page and Syrcas Byd Bychan’s FaceBook page that are suitable for anyone to follow even if you’re new to circus. Stay tuned!
