Work­shops will un­leash the in­ner acro­bat

Southern Telegraph - - News -

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.
