Test your balancing skills and experience the thrill of rola bola in this beginner workshop for pairs!


This classic circus skill comprises a cylinder, a board, and the ability to keep your balance. This beginner workshop introduces participants to exercises that will help you develop skills, core strength and coordination, which are essential for this circus act. 


Pairs of all kinds are welcome—whether you’re an adult-child duo, friends, a couple or siblings!



  • You will be sharing the rola bola with your partner.

  • Come dressed in comfortable clothing that you can move easily in.
