The Champions are a group of young artists strongly connected to Corrugated Iron. They play an important role in the organisation, facilitating projects and programs, hosting events, and contributing to the long-term vision for the organisation.
Jarrah has been an avid Corrugated Iron enthusiast since he was seven. He was a part of many upon many productions, including, but not limited too, Risky Business, Lucid Encounters, two years of Unbroken Land, and Lord Of The Flies. He spends his free time wondering whether or not he should do anything with the free time he has. Corrugated Iron gave him so many experiences, and friends in the community.
Sammy has been part of Corrugated Iron for about a decade and is a member of the Circus Troupe. He has represented Australia at International Skipping Competitions and brings this awesome talent into the circus space. Sammy has been part of productions including Risky Business, Lucid Encounters and Lord of the Flies . Sammy has just begun his teaching career with the Corrugated Iron Rockets.

Emily is truly a creative all-rounder -a circus participant from a gymnast background - that also acts in films as well as skateboards and rollerskates in her free time!
“I joined Corro because I enjoy the creativity and learning new tricks"
If you are looking for someone who has done it all - look no further than Anais, who has tried both drama and ground based circus and is currently an aerialist in Circus Troupe.
“I joined Corro because I have always loved performing, and Corro opens so many opportunities for me to do that with other young people who have similar passions.”
When not at CIYA, Anais puts her skills to the test with rollerskating and laser tag.
