CAMP SEASON IS AMOUNG US! CHECK BACK FOR MORE LOCATIONS COMING SOON.
Circus Camp is Back!
For ages 7-15
What could be more fun than learning circus arts from a team of professional performers in a real circus tent? This workshop will introduce multiple circus disciplines and work to the level of each individual. Students will experience the thrills of tumbling, tightwire, aerial arts, juggling, and acrobatic pole all in a safe and encouraging environment. General conditioning and stretching techniques will be emphasized to promote healthy exercise habits. The workshop will be completed by a Student performance.

Students should wear comfortable clothing that covers the knees. Shirts should be tight or able to tuck in for upside-down activities. If students have flat-soled tennis shoes, ballet slippers or gymnastic shoes, please bring. Bare feet are okay.
Longer hair should be tied back. We recommend not wearing jewelry as it is easily lost or broken.
Frequently asked questions:

-We want the students to be working at similar developmental stages. Students are grouped by age. Exceptions to the 7 year requirement can be made for students with previous experience and a recommendation from their coach.
Are scholarships available?
-Yes! A limited number of scholarships are given at each location by various organizations including Circus Mentors Inc., Mendocino Children’s Fund and the City of Ukiah. Scholarships are need based. Please contact us if you would like to apply and we will direct you to the appropriate organization.

-The students will perform a short recital (about 1 hour) on the last day of the camp. The recital time is listed in the registration information and is open the public. There is no fee to attend the recital.
