CIRCUS WORKSHOPS


You may not know this but Aerial Angels owns and runs our very own Circus & Aerial Academy right here in Burleigh on the Gold Coast!!

It is a very successful division for the world renowned Aerial Angels Productions company.

The Academy teaches Circus, Aerial, drama & dance.

It was the first school of its kind in QLD and has become a Gold Coast success story. The school is now eight years old and has been inundated with families wanting their children to learn the fabulous art of Circus.

This school holiday period your patrons will get a taste of what it’s like to run away with the circus for a day!
