The Handstand Factory opened its doors in February 2006 as a School of Acrobatics, Gymnastics, Performance, and Circus Arts. In 2007 we were awarded the Best New Business in the Wagga Wagga Chamber of Commerce & Industry Outstanding Business Awards. Over the past 5 years the facility has continued to evolve; influenced by some amazing staff during that time and adaptive to the needs within the community. These factors have helped shape The Handstand Factory into what it is today. Julian and Judie Smith are the owners and creators of The Handstand Factory and operate it together with their two children and their staff.
Julian's background is in education as a High School Physics teacher and as a University lecturer in Movement and Improvisation. His experience as a Gymnastics & Acrobatics Instructor spans over 25 years, in which he has coached to state and national levels. Julian currently holds his Level 2 Women's Artistic Gymnastics, Level 1 Men's Artistic Gymnastics & Level 1 Acrobatics accreditations. Julian also has a Level 1 Coaching accreditation in Foil Fencing and runs the Wagga Wagga Foil Fencing Club from The Handstand Factory.
Judie's background is in the Media, Marketing, Business and Early Childhood. Judie initially ran the early childhood classes, but as the business grew and the administration became more demanding, she reluctantly handed over the reins. Judie still currently maintains her Level 1 Kindergym accreditation and oversees the early childhood program and the administration of The Handstand Factory.
The Handstand Factory has a friendly, family atmosphere where customer service is considered a major priority. We particularly pride ourselves on getting to know our children and our parents. All our staff strive to maintain a high level of communication with our parents regarding their child's progress. The Handstand Factory takes into account the experience of the parent as well as the participating child. There is a comfortable viewing platform on the mezzanine which includes a safe children's play area for younger siblings. There is also a playpen downstairs located adjacent to the gym floor. Our facility offers clean and fresh amenities. There is wheelchair access and a baby change table located in the downstairs bathroom. Tea and Coffee facilities are available in our kitchen for parents and spectators. Drinks and snacks are available from the front reception area. The Handstand Factory has a small range of merchandise including leotards, training gear, drink bottles, gym bags and hair accessories. (more)
