Circus Workshop is a circus training school based at Muizenberg High School in Cape Town, South Africa.

This school was founded in July 2001 because of the interest shown by a number of the local school pupils and neighborhood children in the art of flying trapeze.

The school trainers all come from professional circus backgrounds.

Circus Workshop is a recognized non-profit organisation.  Our N.P.O registration number is 039-395-NPO. 

The maintenance and expansion of the school is dependent on active participation in fund-raising activities, such as the live performances which we put on from time to time and donations from corporate sponsors. Our members do not pay anything to learn and train, but they are expected to take part in shows and help maintain equipment.

Members of Circus Workshop have accomplished a lot with the limited equipment and facilities that they have:

  • Leading roles in the opening ceremony of the ICC Cricket World Cup Opening Ceremony 2003
  • Back by demand performances at the International World Kite Festival each year
  • Leading trapeze flying roles in the film production "The Flyer"
  • Numerous shopping centre performances
  • Lead performances in McLaren Brothers circus

Amongst the various activities that our pupils get trained in are:

  • Flying Trapeze

  • Trampoline

  • Static Trapeze

  • Cradle Trapeze

  • Human Pyramids

  • Silks

  • Clowning

  • Make Up

  • Stilt Walking

  • Balloon Modeling

  • Adagio

  • Spanish Web

2003 ICC Cricket World Cup

Most of the members of Circus Image were selected to form part of the 5,000 strong cast of the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup Opening Ceremony.   This was a massive challenge but thoroughly enjoyed by all our members.  You can see some of the photographs of our young performers at this event on the Photo Album page.
