Circus Club caters for ages 7-18.
Each week we offer circus games and the opportunity to learn different circus skills, taught by our trainers catered to your child’s interests. Scroll down to learn about some of the circus skills we offer!
In past years, our talented Circus Club families have previously performed at the Dream Big Festival, Dream Big Schools’ Show, Djerriwarrh Parade, Platypus Festival and The Village Festival!
Please bring a water bottle, and clothing suitable for being active (stilts are more comfortable in pants or leggings rather than shorts) closed toe shoes are required for stilting.
You can use store-bought juggling balls or make your own!
There are tutorials below on how you can make juggling balls out of balloons and rice.
Poi are balls on strings, or ‘sock poi’ are balls inside fabric tubes (these are easier to learn with).
Poi originates from New Zealand where the indigenous Maori people used them to increase the flexibility and strength in their hands and arms, as well as improving coordination.
If you have a hula hoop at home we have some snazzy tricks for you to learn.
Our Circus Club has a lot of avid hula hoopers.
For a make-shift staff you can use a stick (with minimal sharp parts), a broom handle, or a roll of wrapping paper. Even an umbrella will suffice.
Not to be confused with plate spinning! Plate turning involves the manipulation of 1, 2 or 3 plates.
You can use any non-breakable plate with some weight in it (paper plates don’t work so well). Metal camping plates work best but you can also use plastic plates.
Human Pyramids are partner and group balancing and acrobatic activities
You can learn how to balance on people, or balance people in creative ways safely.
