Circus Arts was born from a love of sharing the transformative art form of circus with others. Founder Belinda Hultgren experienced first hand the positive effects of circus on her own life at the age of 18. “I always enjoyed physical activity but never thought I would ever perform in front of people. But the moment I tried flying trapeze, I fell in love with it and couldn’t wait to share it with other people. Circus boosted my confidence and showed me just how much I could achieve”. After years of performing all over the world, it was sharing and inspiring others that brought Belinda back to Australia to start Circus Arts. Belinda opened Sydney’s first flying trapeze rig in 1999. Its popularity amongst those wishing to push personal boundaries and experience the thrill of flying lead to the opening of the Byron Bay location in 2006. Striving to provide a more extensive circus experience, Belinda opened Australia’s first indoor flying trapeze rig and circus venue offering classes for all ages and abilities. Circus Arts Byron Bay now offers a range of circus classes which provide a progression from Kinder exploration through to professional performance.
