Cassowary Kids Circus


This program is to facilitate the formation of a children's performing circus troupe within the Cassowary Coast Region and is available throughout the school holidays, free of charge.

It is intended as a 5 class block so children can learn and work towards choreographed routines for upcoming performances at community events.  The first class in each location is offered as a "taste tester" and for children wanting to continue and work towards a performance piece, attendance at the following 4 classes is ideal, but not a pre-requisite.

The Cassowary Kids Circus incentive’s purpose is to bring circus techniques, teamwork, self-confidence and showmanship to our local youth and is aimed at school children in the Cassowary Coast Region.

Cassowary Kids Circus is an opportunity for students to focus their attention on learning new skills through creative play based circus arts and over the 2 week delivery period, students will participate in learning a variety of circus techniques, with the end goal being 2 performances of their very own circus show for the local community.

Children will participate in a “taste tester” workshop at the commencement of the program to gain general skills and understanding of each of the circus elements on offer.  At the end of the taste tester, children will have the opportunity to think about which 2 skills they would like to refine over the balance of the workshops, in order to build a performance piece for the end of workshop shows.

Every child can reap the benefits of circus, however, students that struggle academically; have trouble “fitting in” at school; that aren’t involved in interschool sports; struggle with learning difficulties; have low self confidence and esteem; may be going through high stress and family problems, have come along in leaps and bounds  by participating.
