Centre of Contemporary Arts Presents:

Event: Flipside Circus Workshops


Roll Up! Roll Up! Come and join in the fun with Flipside Circus' workshops at CoCA and learn a range of new skills.

Whether it’s tackling the trapeze or harnessing the hula-hoop your kids will have a blast at Flipside Circus workshops.

A truly memorable experience for young circus stars. No matter what their skill level Flipside Circus trainers will help them learn new circus skills and give them a chance to show off. 




Storytelling, play and circus 18 months – 3 years (1 hour)
A fun and interactive workshop for children and their carers. Climb mountains, balance over deep ravines, and outsmart big bad wolves! This workshop uses circus skills to take little people (and their big people) on an imaginative journey inside classic children’s stories.

Kindy camp 2 – 4 years (1 hour)
Little circus stars work with their parents/carers and Flipside’s artists/trainers to explore all the fun the circus has to offer. Play-based classes include the full range of circus equipment including: trapeze, tissu, hula-hoops, mini-tramp, and more.

Flipperoos camp 4 – 8 years (2 hours)
Join us in this bouncy and active 2-hour workshop with lots of play for beginners! The Flipperoos camp is a play-based workshop that encourages young children to explore circus in a nurturing environment.

Tricks 8 – 16 years (3 hours)
Come and learn circus tricks that you’ll never forget! From juggling to mini-tramp, trapeze to tumbling, learn new skills on the ground and in the air. At the end of the day perform some of your new skills for friends and family. 



Flipside’s short residencies are about connecting professional circus artist and trainers with communities. The residencies engage children and young people over a wide range of age groups. When recurring regularly or annually they provide a platform for participants to come back workshop after workshop and develop their skills over time.

The workshops are fun and challenging and focus on; building self-confidence, physical skills and fitness, trust and teamwork, and empowering participants to express themselves.

Flipside Circus is Queensland’s largest youth circus company with a national reputation for excellence in training and performance. We believe circus provides a unique opportunity for young people to show off, to take risks, to trust, to dream and aspire, to work hard, to laugh, and to have fun!
