Classes for teenagers

Teenagers have unique needs, so CirQuest has developed a flexible, supportive program of classes for young people which enables them to personalize their lessons, make decisions about their own learning, and cultivate their emerging sense of identity, responsibility and self-actualization.

We know that teenagers are seeking opportunities to develop their leadership, to set and accomplish their own goals, and to envision their futures.  We offer mentorships and traineeships in circus teaching, performance development and technical aspects of production that are tailored to each person's needs to support their development.

Term 2 2021 starts April 19.

Join us for an introductory class during term 1 or during the school holidays to find out if a class is perfect for you!

We would love to hear from you!  If you have any questions about our program and classes, please feel free to send us an email, or call us on 0408 626 941.

Extend Acrobatics and Aerials for 10-15 year olds (level 5)

Once students have learned the basics, this class will enable them to progress safely to intermediate and advanced skills.  Classes are a fast-paced and high-energy, to accelerate the accomplishment of basic acrobatics, trapeze, rope and silks skills with excellent technique.  We recommend  coming to circus twice a week once they are at this level, as more complex skills can be harder to remember after a whole week!

Advance Acrobatics and Aerials for 10-17 year olds (level 6)

These classes are for students who have mastered basic and intermediate aerials and acrobatics skills, and are ready to develop to an advanced level.  This is a great option for kids who want to train 2-3 times a week, which is recommended at this level.

Navigate Acrobatics and Aerials for 10-17 year olds (level 7)

When students have mastered basic and intermediate aerials and acrobatics skills, and are ready to take more responsibility for choosing their goals and practicing the drills and exercises they need to achieve them, they flourish when given the opportunity to chart their own  circus journey.  Training 2-3 times a week is strongly recommended at this level.

CirQuest's Performing Troupe meet weekly to develop group acts and roving performance skills, which they perform at our in-house productions as well as community events and festivals.  In February 2020 our troupe produced and performed their own original work, CirQuesTV, in the Fringeworld Festival.  We can't wait to see what else they have in store for us this year!

Performance troupe participation is by invitation only and participants must be enrolled in another class for the term.  If you would like to join the performing troupe, have a chat to your teacher.
