Castlemaine Circus Inc

Castlemaine Circus Inc. is an inclusive and accessible circus arts program offering classes across gymnastics-based tumbling, acrobalance, conditioning, aerial, circus arts and performance creation, for ages 3 years to adult.

Castlemaine Circus Inc:

  • offers children, youth and adults training in circus skills and physical theatre.
  • creates a safe and positive environment for young people to participate in performing arts activities.
  • promotes healthy, physical, non-competitive activity.
  • encourages creativity and innovation.
  • provides employment opportunities for local professional circus artists.
  • partners with other community organisations to provide training and performance opportunities for broad and diverse community participation.

Castlemaine Circus was established in 2013 as a direct response to ongoing requests from the community for childrens’ circus classes. Established as a not-for-profit incorporated association, by a committee of volunteers (now the organisation’s first staff), Castlemaine Circus Inc. now engages 12 experienced local trainers from Clunes, Daylesford and Castlemaine. (See Trainers’ Page here).

Castlemaine Circus classes began in February 2014 with three classes per week. The circus has been a resounding success and now has twelve classes per week with over 100 children attending. There are two weekly classes for each age group: from preschoolers right through to youth classes.
