PIPER Bailey is dreaming of life in the circus. She's only nine and she can already climb the silks and strike a pose.
Piper's been going to the CQ Circus School for three years and doesn't plan on quitting anytime soon.
"I like it because you can learn everything you want to and it's a lot of fun," Piper said.
"It's all a big challenge."
Piper is one of 60 students that Jacienta Hinton sees every week, as she teaches them new tricks.
Jacienta, a former circus performer, started the school after meeting other enthusiasts.
"It wasn't until a circus workshop came to Rockhampton and I met other people in town that actually had trapezes in their backyards," Jacienta said.
"Then we came together to form the school."
The school has been running since 2007 and is starting its new term.
The school teaches everything from spinning plates to hula hooping, walking on stilts and the trapeze.
