Circus Arts for Young Adults

Teen classes are flexible, designed to encourage free choice with Teenz choosing their own direction. Past Teenz have gone on to become Cirkidz trainers, be invited into the Cirkidz Performance Program, be accepted into the National Institute for Circus Arts (NICA) and tour internationally.

Recent studies from UniSA have confirmed what we at the circus centre have known for many years. In particular, findings from a particular study showed that children involved in regular circus training by Cirkidz within a school environment improved their level of motivation to attend school and engage in learning. It is well understood that remaining in school and getting a good education is a pre-requisite for a good and healthy life. Ensuring children remain motivated and engaged in learning is a key. Studies have also shown that the performing arts offer an opportunity for children to develop life skills such as resilience and coping mechanisms, social interaction as well as improve levels of physical activity. The performing arts also offers children the opportunity to engage in an activity that focuses on team work in a non-competitive environment. So why not get a head start and begin your circus journey today!
