Overview:

This course offers a foundation and progressions in circus arts subjects including aerial fabric, trapeze, juggling and manipulation, theatre, dance, clowning, acrobatics, partner acrobatics, act creation, rigging, make up design and costuming as well as academic work in circus history, contemporary circus and traditional circus performance. This is a physical and academic course. No previous performance experience is necessary; all students progress at their own level throughout the course. The final project is a performance at which each student will perform group and individual acts at their own level. Note that students may request this course more than once during their high school career, but those students requesting it for the first time will be prioritized if requests exceed space in the class.
