Fringe Circus Classes

Whilst the NICA Circus Hub is running as part of the 2023 Fringe Festival NICA Rec will continue to offer a selection of our most popular classes for kids 5+ years, teens and adults. Ranging from general circus to specific skills they are designed for all ages, body types, skill level and fitness levels.

Our Fringe Circus Classes will run these classes for 3 weeks from Monday 2 October - Saturday 21 October.

There’s something for everyone and this will be a great opportunity to come and try some of our classes before Term 4! Head to our Fringe Circus Program to enrol into our 3 week class program as spaces will be limited during the Fringe Season and fill quickly, so you don’t miss out on the circus fun! Our class prices vary depending on the age group and class length, please select your class to find the most up to date price.

Wanting to join in but the program has already started? Don’t worry! If there’s space you can still enrol, and the NICA Customer Portal will adjust your fee to account for the remaining weeks left in the program.

Please be mindful that classes will only run if there are sufficient enrolments.
