Circus skills improve the physical abilities and control over the bodily actions of the participants.
Benefits include: bi-manual coordination or ambidexterity, brain and body balancing, postural control and body orientation, self-image, muscle and core strength, cardio-vascular fitness, flexibility, eye-hand coordination, manual dexterity, increase reflex speed, improve sense of rhythm/timing and non-verbal expression.
Other improvements are hand-to-eye coordination, depth perception or peripheral vision, that not only help with other sports but have also been related to the improvement in reading and writing skills.
The ability to concentrate and to be persistent, to attain the goal of a new trick or skill, can be applied to less exciting tasks, for example.
Learning new skills give participants a sensation of accomplishment. This sense of achievement can boost self-esteem and it can be a great confidence builder.
Pyramid building, for example, is an excellent team builder. Participants have to work together to achieve a common goal.

Mastergravity takes responsibility for contributing to achieving UN 2030 goals in 4 different subjects:
- Good health and well being – To have a strong focus on children's physical and mental health. Many children have low self-esteem and feel bad about anxiety related to performance and competition in society.
- Quality education – An education that promotes a sustainable lifestyle, addresses human rights, gender equality, the promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence through conflict management, the appreciation of cultural diversity and the importance of culture's contribution to sustainable development.
- Gender equality –"Equality is achieved when women, men, girls and boys have equal rights, conditions and opportunities and the power to shape their own lives and contribute to the development of society." This is something Mastergravity strives for daily in the classes.
- Reduced inequalities –To give all children equal conditions for development regardless of their socio-economic and cultural background and therefore we work with the public and non-profit sector to provide circus education to the children who need it most.
