Get fit and have fun with handstands, aerial silks, trapeze, juggling and more at the Circa Contemporary Circus Training Centre. Located in the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts (Level 3) in the heart of Fortitude Valley, Circa’s young people classes are appropriate for ages 3-15 and include a warm up, skills training and development and a cool down.
Circus is a fun way to keep the kids active
Circa isn’t exactly the new kid on the block – the company has toured to an impressive 39 countries across its 20+ year history, and has been seen by over one million audience members worldwide. Circa is proud to call Brisbane home, and in addition to offering world class productions, opens up its studio on Saturdays for kids to learn everything they want to know about circus. There’s even an end of year performance where your children can show off what they’ve learn throughout
These structured classes cover a variety of fun apparatuses for kids, so if you know a little acrobat in training or someone who might be looking forward to climbing up the walls then this is a great pick – there’s even a free trial workshop available the week before, just so you can experience what a real workshop is like.
Tiny Tumblers – For 3 to 5 year olds (and their grown ups!)
Circa’s Tiny Tumblers class is a fun introduction to circus for little ones and their grown ups. Through story telling, games and physical activities your child will learn about movement, listening, coordination and creativity. This parent and child class teaches rope & fabric climbing, acro balancing, mat tumbling, trampoline jumping, juggling, hula-hooping and trapeze swinging.
