Designed for kids, Aerial Angels will be running an Elf Academy on the Little Stanley Street Lawn from 3pm to 7pm during 14 to 23 December. Classes are free and include activities that will make your child a qualified elf, fit for a stint in Santa’s workshop.
There’s hula-hooping-ideal training for wriggling up and down chimneys, juggling-perfect for when you have too many presents to carry, tight-rope walking-to hone your skills for balancing along steep rooftops with Santa, and aerial trapeze – best used when leaping from sleigh to house to deliver all presents by morning.
Or if running away with the elves isn’t your thing, you can also enjoy street performances from the experts themselves. Roaming acrobatic performances are held throughout the afternoon and evening.
If your kids aren’t quite at acrobat age, bring them along to Holly Jolly Kid’s craft and dance classes. There, they can enjoy ornament-making plus learn delightful choreography from Queensland Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker – dance, stretch and prance around in your Christmas finery.
Ornament making is on from 3pm to 7pm, while the Queensland Ballet dance classes are from 3pm -6.30pm. Bookings are not required for any Holly Jolly Kids activities.
