5 Lands Winter Fest at Terrigal - Circus Playspace, Flowersticks PLUS contact staff workshop with Marni Lane
As part of the ACTIVE FEST 2023, Roundabout Circus brings to the community a series of free events that will allow you, your kids, friends, and family to practice circus skills and learn from experienced teachers and enjoy creative play together. We practice all flow toys, juggling, hula hoop, acro and unicycling. Our Active Fest events will include 3x SPIRAL Coast at Gosford, 3x Make your own equipment and Aerial workshops at Wyoming plus partnerships with Sunset sessions Woy Woy, 5 lands Winter Festival at Terrigal and Active Fest event at The Entrance.
This Saturday we are offering a free community circus playspace to activate Terrigal Haven in collaboration with 5 Lands Walk Winter Festival and with support and funding from Office of Sport NSW.
"Learn to juggle rings or hula a hoop, walk the slack-line, attempt the unicycle or try acrobalance with a friend. We have something for everyone, whether you are the acrobat, strongman or the clown."
Roundabout's Circus Play space allows people of all ages to join the circus without having to run away. With over 15 different activities on offer we can cater to all ages and abilities.
Alongside our circus playspace, we are lucky enough to have Marnie Lane providing a contact staff workshop for free as part of this program. Marnie is one of the top contact staff spinners in Australia and reknown around the world for her skills and unique style. This workshop is suitable for teens and adults, both beginner and intermediate. If you are advanced, come and jam with us afterwards.
Don't worry, we won't leave the kids out. Our very own Andy will run a flowerstick workshop for all ages. Flowersticks are a great prop that can be adapted for young kids to have fun but also provide a challenge for experienced spinners to play with. Wherever you are at, Andy can give you some tips and tricks to keep you in the zone.
