Circus Act Styles and Genres

As you may already know, the world of circus arts is very diverse and inclusive; no act is too creative or imaginative. Here are some of the most popular types of acts you will be introduced to:

Aerial Acts

This power style includes aerial silks, aerial hoops, aerial straps, and other aerial apparatuses. Aerial acts involve performing acrobatic feats while suspended in the air.


If you’re a gymnastics fan, this one is for you. Acrobatic acts involve tumbling, balancing, and other athletic movements. This includes ground acrobatics, such as handstands and backflips, and partner acrobatics.


Clowning is a genre of circus arts that focuses on comedic performances. In most cases, it includes physical comedy, slapstick, and other forms of humour. Making it perfect for all abilities!


As you probably know, juggling involves throwing and catching objects like balls, clubs, and rings. Jugglers often perform while balancing on a circular platform or performing other acrobatic feats. And as a note, we also offer specialised juggling courses at Space Plans, perfect for those who want to focus on this fun and beneficial skill!


Contortion is a style of circus arts that involves bending and twisting the body into unusual positions. If you’re considering this act, just keep in mind that it requires immense training in your flexibility.
