Adults' circus classes

When we were kids, we couldn't wait to move.  We jumped on the trampoline all day, climbed trees, and swung on the swings until adults told us to stop. 

We didn't do it because it was good for us, but because moving brought us sheer delight.   In motion was how we were most ourselves, present  and connected.

At CirQuest, we train circus because it feels like that again.  Circus makes us happy.
 

Our next 8-week course starts February 5.  

There are two booking and payment options for our adults' classes:

Book for the term: This is the cheapest option, and you will save 10% (even more if you book before June 30)

Drop-in classes: NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. Drop-in classes will be open if there are any vacancies after January 25.

Early Bird Discounts!! Book by January 15 and save 10%!

Either way you choose to book and pay, you can book well in advance knowing that if you can't make it to a class, you won't miss out. If you book for the term, and you miss a class, you can just come to another class any time during the term to make up the class you missed. If you book as a drop-in, you can cancel your booking at least 24 hours before, and receive the fees back as a credit, or change it to another date or even another type of class.

Membership fees are $25 for individuals and $50 for families, and every new member  receives a free t-shirt as well as discounted class fees and tickets to our shows.  If you're not a member yet, click here to join.

NEW CLASS!  Adults Only Circus Playtime

If you want to try all the different circus skills and find out which one makes your heart sing, this class is perfect for you! This class includes acrobatics, aerials, juggling, unicycle, stiltwalking, and all the other circus things. You can choose your own adventure in this new class, suitable both for beginners who would like to try lots of things and get a broad foundation of lots of different circus skills, and students who like to specialise in one or more different skills. Guest teachers with a variety of different specialities will feature throughout the term, so that students who specialise in less widely-known or fundamental skill areas (such as German wheel or some of the more obscure manipulations skills) can get frequent top-ups of coaching interspersed with independent practice in a safe, fun, social environment. You'll find your core strength improves every time you come, partly because you'll be working your abs from so much laughing.
