Sharm Circus School Dubai

Preparatory school

FEDEC member since 2022

Sharm is a Circus School specialized in Aerials Arts, Acrobatic Gymnastics, Twirling and Flow Arts (Fire dance).

Our mission is to raise awareness of the world of the circus as a sporting and artistic activity, in the countries of the Middle East, where for circus, they only know shows with animals and not acrobats and gymnasts.

Our educational programme is built around:

  • Teaching specific techniques of Aerial and acrobatic arts, stimulating exploration and autonomy in a work space in total safety at a professional and recreational level.
  • Developping communication through the expression of the body, gestures and movements, gaining self-confidence.
  • Developping body consciousness through movement. Using your body as an instrument of expression and creativity thanks to the exercises required for each circus discipline
  • Developping socialization, empowerment and respect; learn to work in relationship with others, respecting each one.

Our school is based on the identification of points of departure and arrival, on the identification of goals in terms of rela tively precise and marked goals, on the sequentially of the paths, on the rationality of operational choices and on the control of their effectiveness.

Based on this, our students receive a Diploma (Certificate) each year after the annual Show demonstration of end of the course.
