Kinetica is a performing arts company and circus school based in Ashfield in Perth's Eastern suburbs of Western Australia.

Established by Rebecca McMahonin & Sarah Ritchie in 2012, Kinetica's aim is to offer a dynamic environment for talented local artists to train, collaborate and produce new works.

Currently the Kinetica Circus School provides training for both youth and adults, catering for beginner to advanced skill levels.



This is facilitated by close collaboration with local and international artists and arts companies within circus, fashion, visual art, multimedia, photography, theatre, dance and puppetry to enrich aspects of both training and performance.

This year, Kinetica was sponsored by Act-Belong-Commit and Healthway to deliver an exciting program of community-based youth circus classes.

These classes allow young people (between 5yrs - 17yrs) to learn circus skills and work towards circus performance opportunities in a fun and safe learning environment.



The Act-Belong-Commit circus classes provide a wonderful opportunity for participants to improve mental health by enhancing self esteem, confidence, body image, leadership and team work skills.

It also provides participants with a sense of belonging and a meaningful challenge by encouraging positive risk taking with an emphasis on fun.

Enrolment is now open for Term 2 2014 (May 5th - June 23rd 2014)
