Zip Zap Circus School celebrated 25 years with a fantastical show last Saturday.
“The children from our Simunye programme who featured in the show were overjoyed and amazed at the response from the audience,” says Brent van Rensburg, Co-founder and Artistic Director at Zip Zap Circus School. “Our mission is to inspire and empower these young performers, and Saturday’s show did just that, it was spectacular,” he adds.

You can help Zip Zap fulfil their mission by sponsoring a child which will give them the opportunity to continue practicing circus performance arts and perform on stage even more.
“The ‘Sponsor students and change lives’ initiative seeks to secure funding for 35 kids in 2017 so that they have the opportunity to develop and reach their full potential. This strengthens their participation in Zip Zap and motivates them to reach for their dreams; wherever it may take them,” adds van Rensburg.

As a part of their 25 years celebration, Zip Zap has will collaborate with well known South African rock band, The Parlotones to produce an evening of good music and thrilling entertainment. To find out more information and to book your ticket, visit Computicket.
