As the holiday season approaches be sure to include a trip to the V&A Waterfront in your plans where you can catch a free Zip Zap Circus School show, every day at 4pm, 14 – 20 December 2015 and 13 – 16 January 2016.

Youngsters from the non-profit organisation will be showing off their incredible talent at the Waterfront’s amphitheatre in an action-packed show suitable for the whole family. Watch Zip Zappers juggling, jumping, climbing and high energy comedy acrobatics that will leave you amazed and inspired. Performances on trapeze, fabric, ring, mini trampoline and unicycle are just a taste of what spectators can look forward to.

Zip Zappers will also be performing at the Waterfront on New Year’s Eve. Various circus acts at different entertainment zones around the Waterfront will add to the carnival atmosphere at the biggest New Year’s Eve party in the country. Across the Waterfront thousands of party goers will be entertained by Zip Zap performers and live bands as they count down to the New Year and a spectacular fireworks display at midnight.

Zip Zap provides free circus training to children from all backgrounds. Co-founder and Director, Laurence Estève says, “Zip Zap offers a fun and rewarding alternative for youngsters. While the temptation exists for many youth to make wrong choices we encourage Zip Zappers to dare to dream, and turn those dreams into a reality with hard work and determination. Our shows at the Waterfront are a true celebration of how Zip Zap has changed lives and impacted communities in greater Cape Town. We are proud to showcase our rainbow nation.”
