Flipside’s community activation workshops are all about enlivening spaces and engaging communities. They are particularly successful when we use our freestanding trapeze – the trapeze is highly visible and acts as a magnet drawing people to other circus activities scattered around the base.
Your community will be lining up to hang from the trapeze, learn juggling and manipulation, hoola hoop, mini-trampoline, acro-balance, tumbling and more. Flipside’s trainers are very experienced at working with a range of skill and fitness levels and with children as young as three years old (with their parents) through to adults.
• Freestanding outdoor trapeze
• Circus skills workshops (timing flexible)
• Professional circus trainers
• Insurance costs, risk assessments etc.
The trapeze requires a flat piece of ground 8 x 8 metres. The other workshop elements are flexible and generally require around 20-30m2 each.
The capacity for the workshops varies depending on the number of activities. A simple activation can work with 10-15 people at any given time on trapeze and larger activations can work with up to 100. The workshops can be run organically or in structured short blocks.
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!!
The trainers were just terrific with our kids. Everyone loved the activities which were good for a range of skill levels and ages. Thanks for a really memorable day, and for making our party prep low-stress!
“The Manly Harbour Village Halloween Street Party welcomed Flipside Circus as part of our activities. The popularity of their presence was reflected in the continuous line up of young and old during the afternoon to experience the trapeze and learn various other circus skills that were offered during the event.”
