Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to perform basic on-ground acrobatic techniques in settings such as community circus, physical theatre, traditional circus, new-wave circus and street theatre. Circus performers and others who use basic acrobatic skills could be entertaining audiences as soloists, with a partner, or as members of a group.

At this level work is normally supervised, though some autonomy and judgement can be expected in live performance situations.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
