Having children can sometimes make you feel like running away to join the circus. To save your sanity, send them off to the circus instead. Perth has a heap of circus based activities for children and adults that are great for improving coordination, balance, confidence and general fitness.
Toddler Cirque – classes for children aged 2 to 4 years designed to increase gross and fine motor skills through games, music and movement, tumbling and object manipulation.
Mini Cirque – classes for children aged 5 to 8 years focusing on childhood development of gross and fine motor skills, coordination and strength with an emphasis on fun and play.
Junior Cirque – classes for children aged 8-12 years, in which children will learn trapeze, aerial hoop, tumbling, balancing, handstands and more. Classes are suitable for beginners.
Teen Cirque – classes for children aged 13 to 16 years, in which children will learn amazing aerial and ground circus acts just like the ones in Cirque Du Soleil! Circus is also a full body workout that builds strength, fitness and flexibility while having fun.
