Baby Circus:


Baby Circus gives joyful playing together moments for the baby and the parent. We work in an inspirational environment completely on age appropriate approach, which allows you and your child to discover the joys of circus.

This class is a social experience for the babies as they meet other little ones and interact and play with them. Being and playing together is also beneficial for the baby-and-parent’s trust and affection development and growth.

We are learning the basics of circus skills such as acrobatics, juggling, balancing and aerial, all adapted to baby’s development phase.

Both babies and parents have a great chance to develop their motor skills and learn to perceive body and environment.

Our focus is to play and be creative through nursery rhymes and songs, by experimenting with juggling balls and rolling amongst colourful scarves. Most importantly: Baby Circus is fun!


When can I start Baby Circus classes?


Our youngest participants are four months old. It is recommended to start this kind of activity when baby is able to hold her/his head steady and upright and to handle a longer waketime (duration of our session is 45 minutes).

Older babies in the group know how to creep, crawl and stand up. If your baby can already walk, it is more suitable to move onto the Toddler group (aged 1-2 yrs).

The first eight participants will be enrolled in this class. Our Baby Circus class is a 45-minute session.

What do I need to take with me?


You should wear comfortable and flexible clothing. Choose for your baby a well fitting baby grow and pants, jumpsuit or playsuit. Baby clothes shouldn’t be too loose or too slippery. At Circus Taika-Aika we provide facilities for diaper change as well as for feeding the little ones. There is no previous circus experience required to attend this course.
