We are a community lead circus school specialising in creating an inclusive space with a way to keep active and learn new skills. We measure our success by the diversity of people attending our sessions from 5 to 55+ our aim is to be a circus school that listens to the needs of the community.
Before the Circus School Coral and Josh the Directors known to the community as ‘Dot and Zooky’ The real circus performers were ranked as Finalists in a National contest for Best UK Childrens party or Entertainer. Coral and Josh loved teaching and seeing the progress that students made so worked hard to decide what was the best next step.
During summer of 2017 Coral and Josh became Directors and set up a Community Interest Company using the initials of their iconic Clown Names, the school became known as DZ Circus School.
In the summer of 2018 DZ Circus school was awarded a Finalist position on the Catalyst Achievement Awards 2018 in the category of Community Arts and Culture. This is a local award within the VCSE of Stockton-on-Tees.
Now the school is focused on the community reach of providing circus skills classes. Check out our What We Do page for a full range of what we are currently offering.
Our greatness is measured in the diversity of people we reach with our classes.
