These 9 youth, ages 10-18 receive a significant scholarship to train 5.5 hours hour a week in circus skills and performance choreography. They present 12-14 performances free of charge throughout the year for places like Nursing Homes, Veterans Homes, Children’s Hospitals and Community Events. Our desire is to give the highest quality training in circus arts to these youth, as well give them the opportunity to create original work and perform free of charge for those who need joy and laughter the most.
Auditions are held annually in the spring for the following year’s troupe.
