Frequently Asked Questions

What ages are the classes for?
Ideally ages 6 to 17. Classes are not separated by age or ability levels in order to establish a team building atmosphere where the younger students learn from watching and working with the older ones. It also is more convenient for parents’ timetables depending on where they live and school hours.

If a 5-year-old is turning 6 during the given year, we can do a trial and see how their concentration and coordination skills are. Often parents accompany their child and work with them until they are able to follow the teacher’s directions and be more independent.

What do students need to wear and bring?
  • Students should wear leggings and bare feet.
  • If wishing to learn aerial, a tight shirt that won’t go over their heads when upside down.
  • A water bottle and light snacks are also recommended. We have a water cooler and sell snacks.
How much are the classes?
Pricing varies based on the length of the school term, but is generally around $160 a term for one class once a week. Please register your child online for an accurate price. We accept drop-ins ($20 per lesson) for students who want to try out our circus classes or those who cannot commit to a weekly lesson.
Does my child need any former experience (gymnastics or dance)?
No experience is necessary. All we ask is for good manners and good listening skills.
What if we miss a lesson?
Lessons can be made up any day during the paid term, depending on class availability. Please check with the teacher what days are best for a make-up lesson.
Do I need to book a class? Do you take walk-ins?
You must book in order to ensure your child has a place, as we have a limit on the number of students per class. Walk-ins are only for those who wish to watch, not participate.
Can I stay and watch?
Absolutely, often parents stay to watch the skills their children have been learning. There is coffee and tea available for purchase, magazines and books to read, and free Wi-Fi. Some parents use this time to help their non-participating children with homework, while others run off to get errands done.
Can I get a refund if my child decides they don’t wish to partake any longer?
No, once you’ve made a commitment on a term or year enrolment, you cannot be refunded. Fees are used each term to cover rent, insurance, equipment, costumes and much more. If you or your child is uncertain, we suggest casual sessions at $20/ea.
