Workshops will unleash the inner acrobat
The annual Splash! holiday program at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre is back and will give children a chance to swing from silks and trapezes hung from the ceiling, tumble down the long foyers, balance on top of one another and try other circus tricks.
Pulse Productions, the company who set up the workshops for Mandurah kids, are moving in permanently to run weekly lessons from the centre.
Pulse director Tracy Harrington thanked the Peel Health Campus and MPAC for the support to get Pulse up and running again.
“The Pulse crew are fantastic mentors for youth in the Peel region,” she said.
“It warms my heart to finally see the organisation will once again have an opportunity to flourish in our new space and share the joy of circus arts with the wider community,” she said.
The workshops run on Tues- days from 6pm to 7.30pm for ages seven and up. The cost is $150 for a 10-week term or $20 for a casual visit.
Adult aerial classes for beginners and intermediate will also be running.
In keeping with their values to support the community, Peel Health Campus, part of Ramsay Health Care, has provided financial help to facilitate the move to the MPAC from Coodanup Community College.
The Splash! holiday program at MPAC gives children the chance to try new circus-related physical activities.
