school holiday workshops

School Holiday Workshops are the perfect holiday activity to get your child out of the house, moving their bodies and making new friends! 

What are these kids workshops all about?

  • HAVE FUN – Circus is all about laughing, having fun and learning something different.
  • CHALLENGE THEIR BODY & MIND – Kids will be moving their bodies in ways they’re not used to. Some of these activities require hand-eye coordination, others include elements of risk, building strength and confidence with each activity.
  • MEET NEW FRIENDS– The perfect activity to get your child off their devices, out of the house and making new friends. Children are challenged to work together, create together and make mistakes together. But most of all, they become each others biggest cheer squad!

circus kittens


Does your little one like to climb, jump, dance and move their body?

If you said yes to any of these, then circus kittens is for them!

For the younger children, our preschool programs are all about exploring their bodies and how they move.

Through the use of scarves, hula hoops and other props children get to explore object manipulation. What happens if I hold it like this? What happens when I throw that?

With the use of dance, obstical courses and aerial activities, your little one gets to explore risky play in a safe environment. Climbing, balancing and lifting their bodies in different ways.

For the older children, pre-school classes are the perfect school readiness program.

These classes focus on building foundational movement and social skills that are so important for your child as they progress into school. Children will learn to take turns and follow instructions through fun activities such as aerial silks, balance beam and juggling scarves. Watch your children flourish under the guidance of our friendly and professional instructors in the Circus Kittens program.

Pre-school circus runs in 10 week terms in-line with the school terms.
