Venue: Flipside Circus – 117 Mina Parade, Alderley

Cost: $10 per workshop or $20 for the day per person

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Flipside Circus. My daughter started at Flipside Circus 2 years ago after her school teacher said she was doing great with her schoolwork, but she needed some help in terms of gross motor co-ordination and she also suffered with shyness in class. Immediately we started circus lessons. Less than 6 months after my daughter started at Flipside, that same school teacher pulled me aside and asked me “What have you done?” In 32 years of teaching, she had never seen a child flourish so quickly both physically and emotionally.

This Sunday you can come and see for yourself. Experience anti-gravity with aerial apparatus, turning into a star on the trapeze, and being surrounded by Saturn’s rings with the help of some hula hoops from 9am – 12 pm on Sunday May the 4th (international Star Wars Day). If you caught Flipside Circus on ABC3’s Prank Patrol recently you will know just how Flipside can create the outta space experience! Have fun with the theme and get creative with Outta Space circus costumes, there will be a giveaway prize on the day for the most creative and circus appropriate costume (hint: movement is very important in circus costumes.)

Flipside Circus is Queensland largest youth circus company and has a reputation for training and performances – mentoring over 30,000 children and young people annually.
