Trainer Joel

Circus School Coordinator

Joel has been involved with Cirkidz for the past eighteen years. Starting as a student in the Circus School, he spent time as a performer before joining the training staff and eventually teaching every age and skill level across the school. During that time he was involved with a variety of performance and pedagogical projects both at Cirkidz and in conjunction with other arts organisations; mounting an award-winning Adelaide Fringe season with the Rambutan Circus Collective, studying social circus with Cirque Du Monde as part of NICA’s outreach program, leading the development of Cirkidz’ preschool-age classes, running the company’s in-house performance event Circus Maximus, and teaching thousands of hours across Circus School classes and external workshops.
