Afternoon session: 12:30pm to 4pm

Calling all energetic and fun-loving kids! Cirkidz is OPEN these School Holidays, and YOU are invited. Are you ready for the kind of active fun you can only get at the circus? Our fun and friendly trainers are waiting to share their skills in the fully-equipped SA Circus Centre on the city fringe. Is your kid a bouncer? Choose ‘OFF THE WALL’ to up their trampoline game. Can’t keep them off the playground? Give ‘PARKOUR’ a try! Are they more of a climber? Book them into ‘SOAR & MORE’ so they can learn the fundamentals of Aerial Arts. Are they all of the above and more? ‘CIRCUS PICK’N’MIX’, ‘READY, SET, CIRCUS’ and ‘CIRCUS SMORGASBOARD’ will let curious kids try a bit of everything! All activities and facilities are Covid-safe.

If you need more convincing, here are a few more reasons why Cirkidz is the place to be;
• UNIQUE & FUN — Their fun and friendly team of trainers teach real circus skills you won’t be able to find all under one roof anywhere else in town. From Parkour and Tumbling to Trapeze and Tightwire… there’s nowhere quite like Cirkidz!
• GET YOUR DAY BACK — Dropping them off for half-day or full-day sessions means you get to work, rest, or do the Christmas shopping.
• IT’S A FUN TIME, NOT A LONG TIME — Not able to commit to weekly classes but still interested in what we do? The Cirkidz school holiday program is bite-sized circus fun!
• CENTRAL LOCATION — Cirkidz is conveniently located in Bowden, just outside the CBD of Adelaide.
• WE’RE SELL-OUTS — All our school holiday programs have fully booked out in 2020, which shows you just how popular these spots are! Don’t delay, have a look at the timetable and secure your spot today.
