Circa Classes

Welcome to Circa Classes. 

 

Train with the professionals.

If you are 3 or 73, an experienced acrobat or a beginner, we invite you to experience the very best in circus training. Our structured courses are a chance to get fit, learn circus skills, make new friends and stand on them. All in a safe, approved environment.

We have a new home. Circa at Brisbane Powerhouse brings classes to New Farm’s iconic venue – full of sunlight, fresh air, easeful parking and close to coffee. Circa at the Judy is our studio at the Judith Wright Centre, home to the globally-renowned Circa Ensemble with state-of-the-art circus equipment.

We have new classes. From creative ways to engage young minds to dedicated aerial classes with no waiting around, we’ve re-imagined how to learn circus.

We have new dates. We are offering a shorter, 6 week course for the first part of Term 3. This recognises we are in uncertain times and finances are challenging. If you are unable to afford the fees, please contact us about our scholarship options.

Term 3 is open for bookings now.  Classes run for 6 weeks from July 13 – August 23.

All new participants who book before July 10 will receive a free Circa T-Shirt.

Why Circus?

Circa Classes offer a range of classes for adults, children and young people covering circus basics, ground acrobatics, aerials, creative development, physical fitness as well as opportunities to join Circa’s elite youth ensemble, Circa Zoo.

Our adults classes offer a fun and challenging way to specialise and develop your skills, push yourself further and move in new ways.

Through circus’ unique blend of art and sport, young people develop a diverse range of developmental, social and physical benefits. While learning circus young people learn how to navigate and respond intelligently to physical challenges and, by incorporating elements of drama, clowning, improvisation and choreography in our classes, they’re able to grow their imagination, empathy, memory, emotional intelligence and communication skills.

Collectively circus can engage communities around a common interest and draw connections between those who perform on stage, those who watch, and those who are learning the craft.

The Queensland Government provided $2000 to Circa Classes through the COVID SAFE Active Clubs Kickstart program. This funding was used towards the purchase of additional aerial equipment to enable Queenslanders to participate in sport and recreation activities.’
