The tutors have coached and performed with world renowned companies and schools including Cirque du Soleil, Circomedia and Ecole Nationale de Cirque.

Company founder Massimiliano Rossetti said: 'We want to really announce the presence of The Oak to people in Norwich and Norfolk and thought that the best way would be to invite our friends to come here to demonstrate their unique abilities and show others how they can learn them too.'
