Programme Overview

The Youth Circus troupe invites young committed students who want to push their training further to acquire strong foundations in circus technique and stage performance.

The group meets 3 times per week to train general circus skills, learn acting and dancing, practice group skills, and create acts. The students will have the opportunity to perform in our RAW showcases each year. We also often get invited to perform at community events, which are excellent opportunities to gain extra experience! 

The 14-18 years old group will have the opportunity to train and create an act in the speciality skill of their choice, which they will perform in our December showcase.

The Audition Process

Interested in joining Youth Circus? We are looking for new circus-lovers to join the troupe!

During the audition process, the candidates will have to demonstrate their circus skills in floor acrobatics and hand balancing, as well as conditioning and flexibility. They will also have to prepare a 1 minute maximum presentation of other skills they might have (such as juggling, aerials, etc). Finally, they will have a short interview with our trainers.

Beginner students are more than welcome to audition for Youth Circus! Commitment and potential will be heavily taken into account when choosing new members for the troupe. Show us that you are passionate and ready to train!
