What we've been up to


When the equipment you’ve ordered finally arrives and you just can’t leave it in the box! 
With this equipment we are installing 3 high anchor points for Harness Wall Running and 6 x Pulley Anchor Points for single point apparatus! 
Our Kids & Teen classes will be introduced to Wall-Running and Acrobatics after the Easter Break.

The Irish Times: Weekend Magazine
Saturday, 23rd March 2019 (this weekend!) Hi folks, so there should be a small article in the paper this coming Saturday outlining a little bit about why Shane (founder and director of Taking Flight) likes to teach, develop, do research into, and occasionally direct... circus arts. 
Sure pop into a shop and buy a copy or check it out online:

This hugely popular class is now also available at 6pm AND 8pm on Thursdays! Please note that this class is not suitable for absolute beginners.  You should be able to climb and invert on fabric or rope.  Contact us directly if you have any questions.

All of our classes include a comprehensive warm-up and warm-down, ensuring that your body is prepared to learn as much as possible from the class.  Take advantage of our 'course packages' and 'bundles' to get the best value for you and your schedule.

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.

Taking flight is made up of a talented and passionate team of trainers and performers who know how to push you to achieve your goals, and make it fun along the way. Shane works tirelessly to deliver personalised support for every student, always looking for new ways to ensure everyone gets the most out of classes, no matter your level.
