Aerials & Circus Play

Circus Play

This class is the perfect introduction to the world of circus. Participants will learn a range of circus skills including object manipulation, aerials, acro-balance, tumbling and more.
Includes warm up game and stretching / strength activities, tumbling skills, mini trampoline, low trapeze, silks, objects and partner balancing. Fun, non-competitive fitness designed to bring the best out in your kids!
Available as casual and term classes.


Students who show dedication and talent in the Circus Play classes or who have previous complimentary training are invited to join the Foundations class to advance their skill set in preparation for performance.
Aerial Foundations is the first level aerial stream focusing on silks, lyra and static trapeze. Students will develop the basic skills on these apparatuses as well as focus on building the strength, flexibility and aerial awareness required for the higher level skills.

Aerials Intermediate/ADVANCED

Students who have passed Level 1 and 2 in Aerial Foundations are invited to move to up to the Intermediate/Advanced levels, where they will further progress their aerial skills. This program offers an opportunity to attend 2 classes a week to get the best results out of the training. Participants will now develop more advanced tricks, create routines and develop performance quality. In the intermediate/advanced class they will progress through levels 3 to 5 with the aim of eventually joining the Aerials Performance Troupe.


Students who show a high level of aerial skills, strength, flexibility and most importantly dedication to the training will be invited to join the Aerials Circus Performance Troupe. 
As well as continuing skill development, the troupe focuses on creating group performances with the opportunity for students to get out of the training space and onto the stage.

Aerials Foundations/Intermediate/Adv/Troupe are offered as term classes only to ensure the skill progression. Bookings must be made by the first two weeks of the term.
