Tumble into the wonderful world of circus these school holidays with Gravity & Other Myths in a brand new acrobatics workshop for ages 5-12 years.

Acrobat’s Academy is a rare opportunity for kids to meet and learn from the world renowned acrobats of Gravity & Other Myths. Guided by these highly acclaimed artists, kids will exercise skills of co-ordination, strength, teamwork and self-expression in a fun and supportive atmosphere.

In a 90-minute session, participants will watch an excerpt from A Simple Space – a multi-award winning show that has been performed more than 500 times across 24 countries. Following this inspiring performance, kids will divide into smaller groups to warm up and explore their physical potential through movement games, floor based acrobatics and group acrobatics.

No previous experience is required – Acrobat’s Academy is an inclusive workshop where all skill levels are welcome. Following the sold-out season of April’s holiday workshop program, booking early is recommended to avoid disappointment.

Acrobat’s Academy is Gravity & Other Myth’s first dedicated children’s workshop program in Sydney and is presented by Barangaroo Delivery Authority as part of a year-round program of leading-edge events and inspirational public art.
