Raising a kid who wants to run away and join the circus? Now is your chance to fulfil their childhood dream without them having to leave home and stray from your steady supply of peanut butter sandwiches. Zip-Zap Circus School (endorsed by the Cirque du Soleil) is an official training ground for acrobatic acts.
Under the coaching of circus industry professionals and the safety net of strict precautionary measures, the art of dazzling performances is perfected. Young ones learn how to juggle, which will stand them in good stead when multi-tasking. They learn how to take a tumble professionally, which will help them pick themselves up and dust themselves off. They learn how to dance, great for showing off at birthday parties. They learn how to play drums, so they can follow the beat of their own. They learn how to fly trapeze, so they can catch their dreams. They learn how to play with fire, making a clown out of others and they'll ride a unicycle, for a well balanced life. Forming part of a human pyramid will keep them fit and supple and well-entertained.
Workshops are available for kids and young adults and parents are welcome to watch with suspended breath. Theatrical shows of the professional international circus troupe feature as events on the Zip-Zap Circus performance calendar with death defying acts of human movement that wows audiences.
