Since the year 2000 Lisa has been teaching a wide range of skills to all ages. Whilst at university Lisa dedicated her dissertation to the effects of community circus with youth at risk and this passion is still alive. Lisa teaches weekly aerial and hula hoop classes, community workshops in general circus skills, hen parties, aerial workshops and private/small group lessons. It is important to her that the next generation of circus performers are taught correct and safe methods and techniques, as well as the joy that comes from learning new tricks and the thrill of achieving difficult skills.
Absolutely buzzing after a morning with Lisa!! She really is an incredible teacher, I cannot thank her enough for this morning, my only wish is I went to see her sooner.

After the unprecedented times of 2020 and the advent of online classes, we're now able to get back in the studio and have face to face classes as well! So take your pick from the classes below and get in touch to book your space (numbers are limited so pre-booking is essential).
Hula Hoop - face to face
A great way to get fit whilst having fun at the same time! Classes vary from on waist, core developing skills to off body tricks. A great combination of cardio and skills. And the perfect social distancing activity to get you off the sofa and back out in to the world.
Hoops (and wipes) will be provided if required.
Monday evenings, 7.30 - 8.30 @ The Zed Shed in Penryn
Tuesday evenings, 6 - 7 @ The Circus Works in Devoran
Hula Hoop - online
In response to the Covid 19 pandemic, Lisa has been running hula hoop classes online, via zoom. With students from across the country, indeed across the world, and for those who still feel safer and happier staying at home, she has decided to keep the online classes going.
Contact Lisa for codes, which change on a weekly basis. Payment is on a donation scheme - pay what you can. Right now it's about staying sane so Lisa has wanted to keep these classes open to everyone.
Saturdays, Beginners, 4 - 4.50
Saturdays, Intermediate, 5 - 5.50
Aerial - silks and hoop
Lisa teaches a mixed aerial class for Swamp Circus in their action space, behind Falmouth Sports Club. Open ability. Currently only silks and aerial hoop available, due to Covid restrictions requiring the non sharing of equipment. Please contact Swamp Circus to book your space.
Fridays, 6 - 7.30, @ Swamp Action Space in Falmouth
"Challenging and always fun!"
Janet Palmer, 47 - Trapeze student
"Lisa was great, her instructions were so clear and we all felt like we'd had personal tuition in areas we were struggling in; she was so quick to give us clear, visual tips. As well Lisa was really friendly and chilled us out if we were feeling a bit anxious about an activity! She seemed to know exactly when to step in and quietly help after we'd had time to try things ourselves - mainly thinking of the trapeze! It was the perfect mix of activities for us. Genuinely inspired a few of us to take up juggling (was very therapeutic!)."
Emily - hen party
"Pitched everything at just the right level to get everyone taking part without feeling like they were being made to join in or compete with each other, especially those who would feel a bit self-conscious ordinarily."
Resource Bank - General Circus Workshop
"Lisa always motivates me to push myself to succeed. Her classes have been an amazing way to raise my self-confidence (knowing that I can hold myself 20ft in the air!) whilst increasing my core strength and fitness."
Lauren Curl - Silks student
