Why Circus?

Circus training is a unique, creative way to keep fit and develop strength, flexibility and coordination. It is non-competitive and suitable for all skill levels. Learning circus skills can be challenging, exhilarating and the results can be spectacular.

What are classes like at The Circus Spot?

Classes at The Circus Spot are both goal oriented and fun. We aim to create an environment in all our classes that is positive and social, encourages supported risk taking, and champions effort – both physical and mental. We strive for excellence in teaching and safety in order to provide the highest quality circus training in Australia.

Our classes are streamed into levels in order to provide ongoing challenges at all skill levels. Students start in a general class and later move on to specialise as they discover their specific passions in circus skills.
