This is a second class for selected students to expand their circus skills and develop at a good pace. If you are keen to improve your acrobatic abilities and work towards achieving your circus dreams, this is the class for you. If you are keen to perform, then you need to be in this class. If you are new to Castlemaine Circus but have experience in circus or gymnastics and are keen to join this class, please let Kirsty know.

We’ve Moved: March 12 – April 6

Due to The Castlemaine State Festival taking over our venue, we have needed to move out. Apologies for any inconvenience to families and our trainers. We are now located at the Old High School Gymnasium in Etty St from March 12 – April 6. Thanks to the Castlemaine Secondary College for allowing us to hire their space, thanks to the help of our circus families and friends for moving all our gear, Adica Arts for their rigging, our Parkour Trainers for dismantling and setting up the space and the Castlemaine Zen group who cleaned the very dirty venue before we moved (what a job!). The space looks amazing now and will be  fantastic for our classes over the next 4 weeks.
