Have you ever wanted to join the circus? 

Or maybe you just love tumbling and rolling and climbing and hanging off everything in sight!

Well, now you can! And in a safe and positive environment full of fun!

We’re bringing the magic of Circus to Maxi-Jazz in the perfect class for you, Dance Cirque and Little Monkeys!

What is Dance Cirque?

Dance Cirque is for children over 6 years of age, great for boys and girls and you don’t need to be a dancer to enjoy it. It works on level cards so everyone progresses at their own pace.

It not only involves an apparatus (silks, Lyra, trapeze) but also a ground act (juggling and hula hooping). Great for cognitive development, strength and flexibility, and mostly confidence.

And we haven’t forgotten our pre-schoolers… we have something very special for them called Little Monkeys.

What is Little Monkeys all about?

Little Monkeys Circus Classes are super fun for pre-schoolers 2-6 years of age. Watch your little one gain confidence and learn new skills.

Each class includes basic tumbling, interactive circuits, balance beams, silks, juggling, hula hoops, and more all under the supervision of our fully qualified teachers.

Our Little Monkeys program also incorporates fun with play elements to help with their development. It is very interactive and has lots of elements to help get children ready for big school such as; identifying colours, answering to their name, following instruction and so much more.

Who can do it?

Anyone can! 

You don’t need any dance experience, you just need to be willing to try new things!

There is a set of skills and drills at each level. Once students have successfully completed the card they will learn a routine and perform their routine in class. They will then get a certificate and move up in levels.

It doesn’t matter what level each student is at, or how quickly they are progressing as we encourage each student to work at their own levels within the class. We work in a circuit rotation allowing the students to work at their own pace with the teacher.

Our classes are not gender-specific and have something for every student and also allows them to interact with other students.

We also have Dance Cirque included in our MAXIfit program for our adults!

Have questions about Dance Cirque and Little Monkeys?

Check out our FAQ’s

All of our Dance Cirque and Little Monkeys teachers must undergo training before delivering the programs and maintain the training with on-going courses, training updates and support from Dance Cirque Head Office. They also all must hold a valid Working with Children Check and CPR and First Aid Certificate.

Little Monkeys will learn how to juggle using scarves and balls. They will learn basic tumbling skills such as forward and backward rolls, cartwheels, donkey kicks, log rolls, and more. Students will also learn a variety of skills on the aerial silks, and continue to learn more as our aerial Lyra and trapeze are introduced over the year. The program also incorporates fun with play elements to help with their development. It is very interactive and has lots of elements to help get children ready for big school such as; identifying colours, answering to their name, following instruction and so much more.

We recommend starting from no younger than 2yrs old.

Although students are in the one Little Monkey class, there are 2 main age groups within this program, 2-3yrs, and 4-6yrs. Each program is catered to that age group and where they are in their development. That is why we always ensure multiple teachers in each Little Monkey class which keeps students within their appropriate age groups and development requirements.

Our Little Monkey classes run for 45 minutes

Apart for having bubbly and friendly staff that just LOVE their Little Monkeys, we ensure our classes have upbeat circus music, bright coloured props and a few other secret ingredients!

We also use equipment and stations to ensure they are constantly moving such as a balance beam, acro mats ( for their acro skills ), hula hoops, tunnel and juggling scarfs. Another way we both engage and educate our students is through the use of picture paddles. These pictures they use to identify animals for warm-up such as; run as fast as a cheetah or jump as high as a kangaroo. We also use them to help your little ones find their station such as; jump like a bunny to the tunnel. And the kids just love the animal parade at the end of class!

We always ensure there is always a trainer at each station to ensure that they are doing the skill correctly and safely. This is also to ensure if a child does run to the equipment they can be stopped by that teacher at the station. We also use the picture paddles for the kids to use if they have to wait for a turn on the equipment.

There is a set of skills and drills in each level after they successfully complete the card they will learn a routine and perform their routine in class. They will then get a certificate and move up in levels.

This is the same for both Little Monkeys and Dance Cirque

No, it doesn’t matter as we encourage each student to work at their own levels within the class. We work in a circuit rotation allowing the students to work at their own pace through the progression cards and skills with the teacher.

At the end of each level card, they will learn a short routine that they will then perform and be recorded for their adults at home. They will do this after they complete each level for silks and juggling.

No it is not gender specific. Little monkeys has something for every child and allows them to interact with other students. It has many interactive elements which is suitable for all genders such as identifying different animals.

Throughout our experience over the past 34 years and with the support of our families, our classes at Maxi-Jazz are purely focused on learning for our students. To ensure that this learning environment is 100% right for them, our studio rooms and classes are exclusive to our students only.

Our families at Maxi-Jazz absolutely love the class progression notes they receive on the amazing parent portal and are thrilled to look at the videos and photos that they receive each year.

Here at Maxi-Jazz, we believe that we offer a quality dance education for all students and we’re proud to stand behind our curriculum and classes.

We understand that choosing the right dance studio for your family is important, and that’s why we’re offering all NEW students to Maxi-Jazz an Introductory Month with a Money-Back Guarantee! We are sure that you will love our teachers, classes and feel a part of our dance family straight away.

As new students and their families enter our MJDS dance family, they will be welcomed and supported by our nurturing team. Each student will settle in their classes and become familiar with their new environment, teachers, and class curriculum over these first few weeks, which is why we offer this introductory month, instead of just one lesson.

However, if after one month you feel the student did not receive any positive outcome and gain confidence within the classroom, we will happily refund you your monthly fee.

Please see our terms and conditions for more details.
