Run by TAPAC - The Auckland Performing Arts Centre

This is an open level class, suitable for both new beginners and advanced students. Taking into account your own physical fitness and abilities, it will challenge you to master techniques used by circus performers on the ground and in the air. Through physical warm-ups, tumbling and acrobatics, you will develop your motor skills, strength, flexibility and endurance. You will experience the thrill of practising new skills on a suspended circus rig that includes static trapeze (single and double trapezes that do not swing), lyra (hanging hoop), aerial rope and aerial silks (hanging stretch fabric). As well as floor skills such as partner acrobatics, contortion and handstands.

Please wear comfortable clothing (leggings and active wear) and tie long hair back. Make sure you bring a water bottle as well!

Teaching artist: Jesse Miller
Jesse has been involved in the circus industry for the past eight years. Beginning his journey right here at TAPAC, then moving his skill set overseas to train and teach in multiple countries including summer camps in both Australia and the USA and at the Beijing International Arts School. He specialises in all forms of trapeze (single, double, triple and flying) with a broader skill range across most aerial arts and ground based partner acrobatics as well as any other forms of circus he can get his hands on!

After a brief stint with the Kelly Brother’s travelling circus Jesse is now back in Auckland and ready to share his knowledge with the TAPAC classes of 2018.
