Flipside Circus provides a year-long program of circus classes that run alongside school terms. We also offer a school holiday workshop program based here at our training centre in Alderley. Our classes are suitable for everybody; ages from 18 months – adults, all skill levels, and all abilities.

Please note, the age range provided here is a guide and when we allocate people to classes we consider their developmental stage in a circus context, and which class will most suit them. We are flexible! We are a circus!

Families can take advantage of our sibling discount on term classes, where a 10% discount is offered to the second and subsequent enrolments on any term class.

Payment plans are available to all families and are deducted via ezidebit. (Fees apply)

Payments made via credit card will incur a 2% fee.

The benefits of circus classes are many and varied – just as the different tricks you learn are many and varied! Circus classes increase your fitness, strength, flexibility and balance, they are fun, creative and interactive. Classes assist with developing focus and multi-tasking abilities and provide a great way to meet other people, and learn new tricks to show off to your friends and family.
