Mimbre Youth is a programme for young people in Hackney to learn acrobatics, streetdance, circus and performance skills. Suitable for all levels, with a chance to learn new or improve existing acrobatics skills: rolls, cartwheels, handstands, flips, as well as opportunities to learn new dance moves and choreographies. As well as weekly classes we regularly (pandemic allowing…) do group outings to see inspiring professional shows and offer additional performance projects where the young people can make their own choreographies and perform publicly!

All classes are taught by professional dance and circus artists, passionate about passing their skills on to the next generation! Allowing the young people a fun and supportive environment to move, meet friends and be creative in, which is at the heart of the programme. For the older group (10-14 years old) the participants can choose which area they want to focus more on, specialising in dance OR acrobatics OR learning a bit of both.

We welcome Disabled young people and participants with access needs. Please contact lina@mimbre.co.uk to discuss in what way we can best support your young person to take part.
