Keep the kids blessedly busy with NICA’s circus holiday program. No matter what their fitness level, they’ll be able to learn fun tricks like juggling, tumbling, plate-spinning, pyramids, aerial hoop and more. There’s an option to attend for a half or full day, or even the whole two weeks (Jan 10-21), and a minimum 1:8 trainer-student ratio ensures everyone is safe and looked after at all times. It’s the perfect holiday pastime for curious, active kids, and most importantly it’ll save you from those dreaded cries of boredom.
If you’ve been looking to switch up your workout routine or find the kids a new after-school hobby, consider signing up for a term of circus arts. Run by the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) in Prahran, these classes aren’t just clowning around but a serious exploration of circus’s creativity and athleticism in a fun, accessible environment. Holiday workshops for kids will also provide a joyful, fun-focused circus experience and keep them entertained over their school breaks.
Whether you’ve always wanted to swing off a trapeze or finally master a handstand, NICA’s experienced trainers will gently coach you from whatever skill level you’re currently at using world-class facilities. Total beginners needn’t be shy either, with opportunities to have a go at circus’s many disciplines to find the one you love.
