Kartwheel Kids Gymnastics Academy was first established in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast in the year 2000, where classes were held at the Caloundra Indoor Stadium. By mid 2002, we had grown enough to move into our own venue in Deefa Street. Mid 2006 saw us relocate to bigger premises in Enterprise Street. We have now moved to even bigger premises in Newing Way - where we hope to keep growing and expanding the buisness over the coming years.
Kartwheel Kids spent it's first 12 years affiliated with Gymnastics Australia & Gymnastics Queensland. As our direction has changed over the years to include more circus arts - Kartwheel Kids is now affiliated with ACAPTA - The Australian Circus & Physical Theatre Association. This also allows us the opportunity to work with other circus companies such as Flipside, CIRCA and Trix - in order to expand our knowledge in this area.
