Adults Circus Classes

Aerials (90 mins) 
(30mins of combined class conditioning)

Initially, we work to develop a basic foundation in all aerial apparatus, with a focus on aerial silks and lyra. This includes movement technique, body awareness, endurance training and basic performance work. All students should find that they are able to create a short performance after only 20 weeks of training!

We've developed a grading system, similar to martial arts. This allows each student to work at their own pace through the grades; creating a safe, structured environment where the total beginner can work alongside an experienced performer!

ACROBalance (90min)

Learn how to stand on and be balanced by other people!

HandBalance (60min)

A great core and strength work-out, this class at our circus school is one hour of handstand training and conditioning.

GROUNDWERK FOR AERIALISTS (60min)

Formulated to support aerialists in their movement across the ground this class covers solo acrobatic techniques and tumbling.

ADULTS Contortion (90min)

Aimed at all levels, this 90-minute class will hone body awareness, and deeply improve flexibility - the core skill-base of the circus performer - via a system of innovative stretching techniques.

Kids & YOUTH CIRCUS Classes

Kids have a great strength-to-bodyweight ratio. The key is to keep them safe, and teach them proper technique so they don’t get ahead of themselves with their own bravery!! We work together through our aerial grading system to make sure all kids retain the terminology, technique, and safety instruction. This enables us to cater for the different rates of learning present in any class environment. 

Beginners are welcome to start any time in our 3-6 Years (60 mins), 7-12 Years (90 mins) and 12-18 Years (90 mins) classes. We also have Adept Youth for 10-18 Years who have progressed to Grade 2, and auditions are held for our aerial youth company Highjinx.

We also do regular School Holiday Programs and have an annual youth Scholarship Program for 10-25 year-olds.
