Short Courses at NICA

Combining the best aspects of sport, dance, gymnastics and performance, our recreational circus classes will improve fitness, coordination, strength and flexibility, while building confidence in a fun and supportive environment.

Classes are term-based and held after school/business hours and on Saturday mornings. They range from general circus to specific skills, and are designed for all ages, body types, skill and fitness levels.

NB: You must book your place in a class before attending. Places are limited, and classes will only run if there are sufficient enrolments.

Activities

Learn the basics or specialise in any number of aerial and ground-based skills: acrobalance, handstands, hula hoops, juggling, rope, trampolining, tissu, tumbling and more!

Facilities and Trainers

NICA’s recreational courses are taught by experienced trainers and industry professionals in Australia’s best custom-built circus training facilities. Classes range from general circus to specific skills, and are designed for all ages, body types, skill and fitness levels. A 1:8 trainer/student ratio ensures the safety of participants. That means class sizes are small and fill quickly so book your place early to avoid missing out.
