Discover the magical world of circus with Jugglebugs playgroup!
Jugglebugs is a session for kids and parents to play and discover circus skills together, guided by one of our friendly circus trainers. You’ll be with your child every step of the way as they tumble, spin and climb their way through new challenges each week.
The class starts with a simple warm up, designed to get little bodies moving and developing strength & coordination. Prepare to hop like a kangaroo, sneak around like a ninja and take giant astronaut steps around the room.
This is followed by an obstacle course combining elements of balance, coordination and memory. Kids then have free run of the circus studio, with the freedom to move between a wide variety of circus activities at their own pace and join in when they feel comfortable. Aerial gear is lowered to just above the crashmats to give a safe introduction to circus, and to help develop the coordination, body awareness and strength needed for later circus work. From here the session is relatively unstructured, allowing kids to be kids and play, so you don’t need to worry whether your child will be able to fit into a rigid class structure. We finish off the class with a group pack down, stamps and lots of smiles!
At Jugglebugs we understand that we’re working with toddlers, not prima ballerinas, so things don’t always go to plan and that’s part of the magic – you never know what’s going to happen! Some weeks your child might be full of beans, another week they might prefer to hang out in the silks for some quiet time. And that’s ok! We work around what each child enjoys and the focus is always on play and having fun.
One week, your child might try hula hoops...
Another week they might be swinging around in the silks...
Some weeks, kids want to work together…
And some weeks you might even become the apparatus!
“We love playgroup! I like that I can bring both kids of different ages and it’s fun and exciting activity for all.”
