About the provider

Northern Beaches Youth Circus is dedicated to providing young people with access to positive circus arts experiences. Through a well structured program covering creativity, self-expression, strength, flexibility, story telling and safety, young people experience the joy of becoming young circus artists in training.


The adventure begins here.

At Vertical Circus our child will enjoy a thorough physical warm up, covering strength, flexibility, balance, co-ordination, concentration, fun and joy.

The learn, through step by step progressions, to jump safely and skillfully on the mini-tramp and to execute different acrobatic manouveurs. Your child will learn to climb and move creatively with a focus on technique on the trapeze and aerial silk.

We will also cover ground and manipulation activities such as juggling, plate spinning, diablo, feather balancing, uni-cycling and balance beam walking. Tumbling such as cartwheels, forward rolls, jumping and handstand training will also be central to our circus program.

The most essential element for any little circus performer will be plenty of creativity, performance skill activity and opportunities to create and make group and solo acts. Acts which you as parents, family and friends can enjoy watching in the final week.

Your child's well-being, safety, joy, friendship and sense of achievement are the most important factors of our Northern Beaches Youth Circus's program.

Most recently Catherine has been building circus literacy and skills on the Northern Beaches through The Northern Beaches Youth Circus, which has run very popular weekly and holiday circus and performance classes at the Dee Why PCYC and the German International School Sydney. Soon Catherine will be offering classes in collaboration with other highly skilled circus mentors out of the Collaroy Plateau Community Centre.
