The South Australian Circus Centre is a not-for-profit, fully equipped, state of the art circus school located in Bowden, SA. The school runs weekly circus arts classes for children aged from 2.5 years up to adults aged 80! Whether you want to improve your child's confidence and coordination in a non-competitive environment or improve your own strength and conditioning through mastering the art of aerial trapeze, there is a class that will suit your age and skill level.
The organisation was founded in 1985 to provide meaningful recreation and community engagement opportunities for disadvantaged youth in Adelaide’s inner west. 30 years later we are still empowering people of all ages by enhancing their social, physical and creative development through value based training and a lot of fun!
The Cirkidz Journey: Where does my child begin?
The SA Circus Centre
Small Group Adult Fitness classes
Tiddlerz (ages 2.5 - 5) This is where the children begin their journey in our circus school and where they begin to understand how their bodies work by learning through play. Parents and carers actively participate with their child during class and help them to explore their surroundings while they learn to coordinate their bodies. It’s a terrific way to bond with your child while they learn beneficial skills such as balance, coordination and flexibility.
Tackerz (ages 5 - 8) the children now participate independently and learn team work skills, sharing, bonding and developing empathy as they recognise that their world is greater than just their family unit.
Tweenz (ages 9 - 12) learn resilience and develop their own identity as they specialise their skills. Group and individual problem solving support their growing understanding of responsibility and their place in the wider community.
Teenz (ages 13 - 17) use their specialised skills to develop techniques to confidently survey risks and challenges, they combine technical skill with increasingly complex creative expression (abstraction and reinvention) to shape their own identity into adulthood
