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.

Does your child have support needs?

Sensational Circus is our program that provides children with the individualised supports they need to develop the skills, experiences and relationships that make participation in our inclusive classes successful and enjoyable. 

Our very own OT, Isobel Lyall, combines her extensive circus experience with evidence-based therapeutic strategies from a wide range of different theoretical perspectives, models and frames of reference. 

Sensational Circus sessions can be 1:1, in groups, parallel with classes, and integrated into circus classes. NDIS recipients can include Sensational Circus in their choice of service providers.
