Who Are We?
The CIRK is a South African performance and fitness training company based in Johannesburg. Originally operating from a beautiful venue in Wynberg, Sandton, the COVID-19 lockdown has caused the brand to innovate and evolve into the digital world.
The CIRK now brings a variety of fitness classes to peoples’ homes through live-streamed Zoom sessions, or pre-recorded classes. From stretch and contortion, to contemporary dance, yoga and kids classes, packages can be purchased so you can enjoy the classes that suit your budget and time.

how it all began and where it is now
The CIRK is the result of the combined efforts of an amazing team of people from very different backgrounds. They all shared a dream to create a space that would inspire creative expression and art in its many forms, across multiple disciplines and who wanted to bring the magic of cirque to everyone in a way that was unforgettable and unique.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the entertainment and group-training sectors crashed completely, along with the call for corporate entertainment – one of the biggest parts of The CIRK’s revenue streams. So the team had to innovate and think far outside the box. The result was an evolved fitness and training programme that was fully adapted for at-home training, through a live stream. Classes are held every day of the week, giving the instructors at least some kind of income, while helping people to stay fit at home.
The CIRK troupe was often called in to provide exciting entertainment at corporate events. This need has sadly fallen away due to group-gathering regulations. However, once again innovating, The CIRK is now offering live-streamed or pre-recorded circus entertainment acts to make a corporate meeting or conference a bright and different angle, and hopefully bring some positivity and inspiration to those meeting together via digital platforms.
The CIRK really has something for everyone, whether you want to stretch out those tight muscles, increase your flexibility, get fit by beautiful dance sessions and routines, or relax body and mind through yoga. And most classes can be enjoyed by the whole family.
