Independent Artist Program

The Independent Artist program allows experienced circus artists to train at the centre at a reduced cost in return for their active participation in the circus community. The program offers the artist access to the SA Circus Centre for self directed training at approved times unavailable to the general public. The program is a wonderful opportunity for artists to connect and collaborate in a friendly and supportive circus community hub.

Pricing - $29.00 week

If you have a select period you are looking to train i.e. 3 weeks, you can pay the 3 weeks in a lump sum and you can train over that period.  With this option payment must be made in full prior to commencing training. If it is over a longer period (4+ weeks) you can set up a fortnightly Direct Debit plan which will be $58/fortnight. If you are here for only 1 or 2 weeks, payment can be made at the start of the week via Credit Card.
