Cirque Du Monde aim to promote and provide access to circus, street arts and circus theatre to the people of the Scottish Borders, particularly young people in the region.
Circus provides a variety of experiences and activities which facilitate positive emotional, physical and health outcomes, promoting a healthy lifestyle, attitude and teamwork, equipping young people with essential life skills.
Using the experience of play, fun and creative expression, holistic therapy and circus improve emotional and physical health, cognitive function and quality of life.
In addition to recreational classes, for those who wish to develop their skills further, we aim to train and support young people throughout their development, including career support into employment.
Cirque Du Monde are working hard to raise the necessary funds to provide classes from our base in Galashiels, and through outreach programmes to other towns and villages in the Scottish Borders.
