Get Out! Circus Series 2017: A partnership with SoCirc and MLSE Launchpad (New!!)

This is Get Out's! first ever Circus partnership with SoCirc and MLSE launchpad. Perfect for the beginner, intemediary and advanced circus students and folks curious in exploring circus as a way to get exercise, explore broader notions of 'queerness', build trust, confidence and foster community.
