Castlemaine Circus can come to your school or, even better, schools can come to our venue and utilise our wonderful set up and our extensive range of gymnastic approved equipment. We can develop a curriculum across the term, semester or run a set number of classes. The classes teach skills in gymnastics, tumbling, acrobatics, handstands, acrobalance, aerials, mini tramp, beam, partner & group acrobalance, parkour and a variety of juggling manipulation tools.

We provide amazing trainers with high level skills in each of these disciplines and many years of teaching children of all ages. We have gymnastic accreditated trainers, trainers with Tertiary degrees from various Circus Universities around the world, including NICA in Melbourne and professional circus artists who have performed with the likes of Circa, Circus Oz and Cirque du Soliel.

We can teach small groups or back to back classes and we can keep costs down with the support of the teachers. Please get in touch to discuss your schools needs.
