Adults' circus classes
(Playtime for grown-ups)

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.
 

 We've moved!
We're busy setting up our new bigger, higher and better venue at 50 Goodwood Parade, Burswood.

We will be opening on January 31 and our term 1 class schedule is ready now!
 

Our adults' classes run in short courses for  10 weeks.

 

Our booking process has changed to make it more flexible and easy to use.  There are two booking and payment options:

Drop-in classes: Just book in for any class, and pay at the time you book.

Pre-paid pass:  Choose from a 5-class pass (save 5%), a 10-class pass (save 10%), or a 20-class pass (save 20%). After purchasing, you can either book your classes one at a time, or you can make a repeat booking to book for the same class each week for 10 weeks.

Either way you choose to book and pay, you can change or cancel your booking any time.  If you change your booking more than 48 hours before the class starts, you will receive a full refund of the class fee as a credit to use for future bookings.

Before you can purchase a pre-paid term class, you need to become a member. Membership fees assist us with our insurance costs, and also every new member receives a fantastic welcome pack including a free t-shirt!  If you're not a member yet, click here to join (and then you can go ahead and book for the term).
