Is CIRCUS SCHOOL the extracurricular activity you’ve been searching for? Think outside the box for an activity that will engage and excite your child on every level.
Why choose circus school?
Traditional kids activities often don’t appeal to every child. If you’ve bounced between sports, drama and dance without having much luck then maybe circus school is the way to go!
Circus school gives active kids the chance to take risks and ‘go for it’ in a supported environment that ENCOURAGES them to go against the grain! It promotes confidence as well as both physical and social awareness. The FUN factor is HUGE so you’ll rarely get a child dragging their feet when it comes to class time!
Flipside Circus school is Queensland’s largest youth circus company. The training centre is in Alderley. It’s a not-for-profit that looks to put the fun BACK into childhood and help children get in touch with their innate sense of playful curiosity. They hold free trials AND offer birthday parties! Cool!
