Meet the Eastern Hub Trainers
Trainer Natalie is a Cirkidz Troupe graduate who has been practicing her circus craft for over 10 years. Her favourite skills to teach and perform include tissue, hula and unicycle.

Circus is not only fun, it’s also really good for you!
A recent study by the University of South Australia (Cirkidz in Schools 2015) has revealed a direct link between the participation in circus activities and the increase of motivation and engagement of children. The participants involved in regular circus training by Cirkidz improved their level of motivation to attend school and engage in learning as well as plan and manage school work.
“It is well understood that remaining in school and getting a good education is a prerequisite for a good and healthy life. Ensuring children remain motivated and engaged in learning is a key.” – Dr Richard McGrath, Health Sciences, UniSA.
Cirkidz is a not-for-profit organisation that was founded in 1985 to provide meaningful recreation and community engagement opportunities for disadvantaged youth in Adelaide’s inner west. 30 years later the school welcomes nearly 500 students each week and continues to empower people of all ages by enhancing and nurturing their social, physical and creative development through circus arts.
