Are You Ready for Something Really Different?

Welcome to the Big Top School of Circus Arts! We are the first school of circus arts AND the first NINJA WARRIORS TRAINING GYM in York Region.
We offer a wide range of programs:

Exercise doesn’t have to be boring and repetitive. In our programs students are introduced to a wide variety of activities. They work at their level to improve the skills they enjoy the most. The goal of our students is to work towards their personal best. We train individuals within a fun group atmosphere.

Circus arts is a non-competitive activity where all students learn to achieve results without pressure or stress. Ninja Warrior Classes provide exciting and ever-changing obstacles to challenge your body and mind. Students never get bored in our programs as there is always something new and challenging to try. We have programs available for children of all ages, even adults!

Check out our Program Schedules for more details on all classes.

Customer Testimonials

Hi Lisa & Yuri,

I just wanted to say thank you for hosting such a great event with our group (Hand Over Hand) yesterday. All of our members had a wonderful time!

We really appreciate how your venue is inclusive to everyone in the community, and how understanding you were of the various needs of our members.

We also wanted to thank you for the complimentary use of the party room; our parents were thrilled to be able to watch their child having fun at the circus.

Thanks again and we hope to come back to Big Top in the future!

All the best, Raquel Burgess, Manager of Events, Hand Over Hand - Mobilization, Awareness & Understanding

We loved having Holly's party at Big Top! The kids all had a great time. We will definitely be back for more parties! Thanks for taking great care of us,


Meredith really enjoyed her party. Anya was fantastic and the children really liked all of the activities. We were especially happy to see the cheese pit back at the new location! I like the 1 hour and 15 minutes of activities and the 45 minutes in the party room. It works out very well time wise.

Congratulations on your new location! I'm sure we'll be back for the third year in a row!

Thank you very much for your great participation at the Multicultural Family Event in Newmarket last Sunday! Without your contribution, it would have been impossible to have such a success!

We appreciate your effort to help us host an event that was well attended by the community and an opportunity that was created for many families to spend time together and have so much fun!

We are looking forward to your involvement in our upcoming events in the future, and we wish you all the best with your businesses!

Good evening,

My daughter Kennedy had her party at Big Top this afternoon and I have to say, we are SO VERY happy with the party and your expertise. The kids all had so much fun. They are raving about the fun they had. Kennedy told me she wants to have ALL of her parties there.

So, thank you so much for making Kennedy's birthday so memorable. It will be a tough one to beat.

Cheers to you! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Community Involvement

Community involvement is an integral part of Big Top Circus Arts School. The Relay for Life, MS Walk-A-Thon, Circus for Heart and Autism Ontario are a few of the events the school has actively supported.

“York Region has been very good to me and my family. They have welcomed us and supported our efforts to start a circus school in Newmarket.

I am just happy to give back in whatever way I can. If that means putting on a performance for a good cause, I’m happy to do it.”
