Little Stars Circus is a team of professional aerialists who want to spread the fun and fitness that learning aerial arts brings.


From their fully-equipped studio in Chelmsford, Little Stars gives children an alternative way to develop physical, mental and social skills, through gravity-defying activities like aerial hoop and trapeze.

Little Stars is led by founder Dr. Diana Entwistle a professional aerialist and ice skater with a background in squad level gymnastics and ballet. Diana has a PhD in bio-mechanics and is an expert on the physiology of sport.

Offering both children’s and adult classes – Little Stars Circus training is rooted in core principles of biology and physics, developing the fundamental physical skills of risk, balance, stamina, strength, flexibility, and body awareness.

Supported by Essex 2020 – Little Stars Circus have developed Circus Science – a suite of digital resources for home education and use in schools. A series of videos and accompanying worksheets aligned to the national curriculum (GCSE) use circus arts to demonstrate scientific concepts.

Circus Science – Chemistry uses the circus art of fire poi to demonstrate the principle of combustion.
Circus Science – PE uses the circus art of contortion to teach about the skeletal and muscular systems.
