Join One of Auckland’s Most Fun School Holiday Programs These HolidayS

Ever thought about running away and joining the circus? Here’s where to learn the ropes! The Dust Palace offers one of the most exciting school holiday programs in Auckland, providing three days of awesome circus fun!

Learn how to balance, juggle, hoop, tumble and climb to the rafters! There’s games galore, music and costumes—you can even try your hand at devising your own act!

All abilities are catered to - we've divided the two weeks loosely into beginners & intermediate - but please enquire using the form opposite if you have siblings or a pair of friends at different experience levels who want to attend the same Week.

WEEK 1 : Beginners - aged 7+

Week 1 is aimed at kids new to circus. It teaches the kids aerial skills - silks, lyra, trapeze etc; and some ground-based skills - acrobatics, juggling, hooping - right from the first step.  Classes are capped at 15 kids and we work towards devising a mini-showcase on the Friday.

WEEK 2: Intermediate - aged 9+

Week 2 is aimed at kids who've been to a circus holiday program before, or learned a few basic skills in circus classes. Our tutors can then extend the kids to build on what they already know. Classes are capped at 15 kids and we work towards devising a mini-showcase on the Friday.


Programs designed specifically for school-aged participants

Our team of acrobats and circus professionals are not just exceptional performers: they are incredibly passionate about what they do, and love to teach new skills to young people in a fun and encouraging environment.


If you love the school holiday program and want to grow your circus skills, be sure to check out our regular classes and training sessions that run after school and in the weekends during Term time for all ages and experience levels.
