The Circus Studio was founded in November 2016 by the Dutch circus company Tall Tales Company. The entire project is driven by the local circus community. We try to keep prices as low as possible and in return we ask regular users to contribute by helping with maintenance, performances and other jobs. We try our best to make a meaningful contribution to the local area by offering circus classes for youth and adults (in partnership with Circus Rotjeknor). 

The Circus Studio is located in the Odeon building which offers dance, theatre, crossfit, MMA and many other classes to the people of ‘the Old West’ (the area in Rotterdam where the studio is located).

Aerial silks classes

Wanna rock the silks like the people you’ve always looked up to, but don’t know where to begin? With Ray you will get a good start. The beginner classes will step-by-step revisit the basic positions, drops and/or movements which in a progressive way build up to combinations and sequences which could be part of your own routine, or can be used to further develop yourself into your next performance.

For intermediate, we will add a next level by incorporating more dynamism into certain movements and build up to more dynamic/acrobatic elements.

From the island of Curaçao, Ray Cardoze crossed the globe to pursuit his passion. After a couple of years of training and performing within the youth circus group Danzartestudio Curaçao (2011-2014), he studied at the Academy for Circus and Performance Arts in Tilburg. Now it is time to pass on his knowledge to a new generation of aerialists
