Circus Club

Now in person at…

2nd Melton Scout Hall, Blackwood Drive, Melton South

Improve your coordination, confidence and have a lot of fun!

Learn stilt walking, juggling, hula hooping, plate turning, staff spinning, poi, clowning and human pyramids, safely from experienced circus trainers.

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.

The Circus Club is Proudly supported by Melton City Council.

Participants over 16 and accompanying guardians will need to show proof of vaccination or approved exemption as per DHHS requirements using the Service Victoria app.

All trainers are fully vaccinated.

Some of the circus equipment we use includes:

Juggling Balls / Bean Bags

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

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.

Hula Hooping

 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.

Staff twirling & stick Manipulation

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.

Plate Turning

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

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.
