CIRCUS IS JOYOUS, CELEBRATORY, AND RISKY. IT ENGAGES THE BODY, THE MIND AND THE HEART AND HAS THE POWER TO TRANSFORM YOUNG PEOPLE AND THE WORLD THEY LIVE IN.

DREAMING BIG – CIRCUS IS A STEPPING STONE TO BIG DREAMS.

Flipside’s bursary program is all about helping young people achieve these dreams regardless of background or circumstance. We recently sat down with Mark, 14 – a recipient of a Flipside bursary – to chat about circus and his dreams.

Mark sees circus as a great way to develop the strength and skills to make it in the world of wrestling…

“I THOUGHT CIRCUS MIGHT BE ALL ABOUT CLOWNS AND POPCORN – BUT IT’S NOT.

“I DIDN’T EXPECT ALL THESE FIT PEOPLE! ALL THESE SKILLS… REALLY IT’S LIKE A GYM. THEY GET YOU REALLY FIT AND THE ATMOSPHERE IS SO ENERGETIC”

Your generous gift will help us reach our target of $1,500 to run this program for the remainder of 2018.

The bursary is part of Flipside’s social circus programs that include regular programs for children with a disability, community programs, and programs in remote and regional Queensland.

“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.”

 

“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!!”

“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.”
