Flipside is a not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting children and young people, while helping to grow Queensland’s world-beating circus sector for over 20 years.

We are committed to providing opportunities for young people to access the benefits of circus programs regardless of their circumstances – and to work to become a national leader in youth arts and circus arts practice.

We believe circus provides a unique opportunity for young people to show off, take risks, trust, dream and aspire, work hard, laugh, and have fun!


WHAT OUR COMMUNITY SAYS

TESTIMONIALS

Flipside Circus a great organisation teaching gymnastic skills in a fun and nurturing way. Taking in age groups from the very young to the fully grown, physical and mental confidence is encouraged and developed using circus performance skills and acts. This approach is particularly embraced by the youngest members (pre-high school). A great community atmosphere which embraces students, instructors, other staff, parents, family and friends. Highly recommended for children seeking something physically different and less competitive then other team sports.

Andrew Bevan

It’s a great place, friendly staff and lots of good people about. I attend Adult classes at night and am really enjoying the culture. I’m doing things that I’ve never done before, especially from childhood. From a fitness and core perspective some nights can be intense, but they really cater well to the abilities of the class. My flexibility is woeful but I’m making greater progress than I have in years. A fun way to exercise! They live up to the values listed on their website and I feel they’ve got a lot of integrity.
I recommend it for everybody to at least try once.

Gary Thompson

Great venue for learning how to be part of a circus!!! The trainers are very friendly and excellent at working with kids of all ages and skills. The kids start off learning basic floor skills, tumbling, cartwheels, jumping, somersaults etc. They then start to learn more advanced skills like trapeze, silk/rope acrobatics, juggling and others. Great overall experience!!
