Get ready to get physical and very bendy, as the SA Circus Centre is finally going online, and they are more than ready for their closeup.
After postponing term classes due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the SA Circus Centre and the Cirkidz Circus School are finally launching an online platform that will allow students to take part in classes from home.
Announcing the exciting news via their social media pages, the school has been busy turning their Bowden rehearsal room into a fully-fledged production studio so they can start broadcasting their lessons.
These classes will not only be broadcast for students in the SA Circus Centre’s artist development program but also for those who participate in community programs.
Not only that, but these online classes will also be broadcast as a means to help support South Australian schools utilising online learning programs during this time.
Founded in 1985, The South Australian Circus Centre was initially created as a not-for-profit organisation with the aim of providing meaningful recreation and community engagement opportunities for Adelaide’s disadvantaged youths.
Since then, the SA Circus Centre has evolved into a state of the art circus school offering weekly classes for children as young as 2.5 with their Cirkidz program as well as classes for adults aged well into their 80s!
Some of the classes that the circus school offers include parkour, tumbling and aerial. There’s even a troupe for young performers who have dreams of making it professionally.
You may have even seen some of their students perform at events such as the OzAsia Festival Moon Lantern Parade and the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant.
