Learn to climb and fly on fabric, rope, trapeze, and hoop in our Dublin City Centre studio.

What we've been up to


Taking Flight recently worked with 2 secondary schools in Dublin city to engage in a creative process using the language of circus arts.  Collaborating with staff and students, a show was developed, produced and presented in the axis theatre, Ballymun.  The creative engagement with students and staff blew us away.  Our own practices as tutors and artists are so much richer and varied for this experience.

Plans already underway for 2020.  If your school is interested in being involved, please contact us asap.

Participating Schools in 2019:
St Mary's Secondary School, Glasnevin
Trinity Comprehensive, Ballymun

Funding for 2019:
Creative Engagement (NAPD)
Dublin City Council Arts Office

I will be speaking this morning on the Alan Corcoran show at about 11:30am about he urgent need for insurance reform in Ireland.  Many of our businesses are struggling with the spiralling costs of insurance premiums, if we can even get them.  Some are forced to close down whilst others run the huge risk of trading without public liability.

In the past few years, the underwriters for the studio have been UK based and now that market has disappeared, despite no claims!  Now I have to try and search further afield and I'm not even sure it's possible!

What our students think

After recently attending an aerial bootcamp at Taking Flight, I found the space perfect for aerial. The atmosphere was friendly and fun, the training was fantastic, catering to all levels.
