CirQuest kids' classes

CirQuest kids are confident, collaborative and creative!  You'll love the unique balance of structure and freedom in our classes.  Kids develop social problem-solving and communication skills while learning acrobatics, trapeze, trampolining, juggling, stiltwalking, unicycle and much much more.  Our dedicated teachers are trained and mentored by our director, occupational therapist Isobel Lyall, to provide the just-right challenge each child needs for focused, independent, motivated learning, and to discover their unique role in our growing circus family.

 We've moved!

Our new HQ is at 50 Goodwood Parade, Burswood.

Term 2 2022 starts April 25 (yes, we are open on public holidays!)

If you would like to join us for a class during term 1 you still can.  

We also have an amazing school holiday program - click here to find out more!

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 term pass:  Purchase a 10-class pass and save 10%, and then proceed to booking.  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).
