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.
How much are the classes?
Pricing varies based on the length of the school term, but is generally around $250 a term for one class once a week. Please register your child online for an accurate price. We accept drop-ins ($28 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?

If you are unable to attend a class and have told us in advance, we will add a ‘class credit’ to your account to use at a later date with the same term. Please book this in advance as classes are restricted by the number of trainers available.

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. You can always try calling before class to check 1800 464 995

Can I stay and watch?

Absolutely, often parents stay to watch the skills their children have been learning. We also have free WIFI to catch up with work! Some parents use this time to help their non-participating children with homework, while other run off to the local Earlville shopping centre 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 $28ea.


  1. Classes must be used in the term for which they are purchased.
  2. If a class is missed or skipped, or is not running for any other reason, that class can be made up the following week (unless the following week is outside of the term, in which case the class must be made up in the same week).
  3. Unused classes are forfeited at the end of the term.
  4. Purchasing a term class signifies that the student agrees to attend all classes for that term. No discounts or refunds will be considered if a student decides to stop attending classes during a term.
