  • Slipstream Circus is a non-profit Youth Circus. Circus Skills started in 1997 within Burnie Gymnastics club and SSC was incorporated in Ulverstone in 2000. Slipstream conducts classes in circus skills for all ages and skill levels. We aim to foster personal development as well as cooperation and community involvement.

    What do we do?

    • Circus Classes, including a chance to perform in an all-members show for the public.
    • Workshops and Performances for events and festivals, book us!
    • School Programs & Social Circus to the community - Start a great collaboration with us.
  • Slipstream Circus Inc. provides circus arts training programs and performance opportunities within safe, youth friendly spaces, in consultation with young people. The environment is designed to develop a sense of belonging to a group, as well as solidarity, perseverance, listening to others and respecting them, self-confidence, and participation in the community. These values result in personal development that is in harmony with the unique nature of each person.

    Slipstream Circus programs improve physical health and develop resilience in young people. The programs provide strong, vital youth role models and foster broad public acceptance of young people's needs so that positive images of youth are promoted.

    The cornerstone of Slipstream Circus' approach is based on a sincere respect for all participants. It is designed to contribute to the physical, human and social development of young people, giving them the tools they need to facilitate their integration into society at large. The goal is not to force young people to conform, but instead to give them a springboard toward another stage of development.

  • Every year Slipstream has a show at the end of the year, where all classes in participate. During our classes our kids will practice their routines and for 1 week we will all perform as real stars!

    This can be at a theatre or at our Slipstream hall. This is always a very special time where all hands are on deck when parents help with costumes and make-up, we hire somebody to help us with sound and lighting and our director and assistant director are working with lots of excitement towards the shows.

    Everybody can buy a ticket for our show and if you want to have a look with your school or any other group, let us know!
