The Flying Fruit Fly Circus is a member of the Australian Roundtable for Arts Training Excellence with the other elite national training organisations – Australian Ballet School, Australian Film Television and Radio School, Australian National Academy of Music, Australian Youth Orchestra, NAISDA Dance College, National Institute of Circus Arts, and National Institute of Dramatic Art.
We provide a highly structured yet flexible training and performance program that caters for the continued development of 80 young artists aged 8 to 18 years during a 40-week school term at an elite level. Students currently graduate with a Certificate II in Circus Arts.
We strive to produce graduates that are ‘performance-ready’ for leading Australian and international companies.
The program provides more than just professional circus skills training, it also gives students a keen understanding of personal and team safe working practices, the temperament to tour professionally and an individual sense of confidence, physical fitness and achievement.
