Our next Winter Circus production will take place on Feb. 9 and 10, 2019, at the Goodman Community Center! We will spend 15 weeks creating and polishing circus acts which combine skills and apparatus such as tight wire, stilts, German Wheel, unicycle, acrobatics and juggling! We tend to use a collaborative format that allows participants to learn about choreography, creative process and performance skills as they combine ideas with mentorship and guidance from professionals in the field. Proceeds will benefit our Wild Rumpus Circus Scholarship fund!
Who: Kids (10 and up) through adults, with prior experience in the aforementioned disciplines and consent of directors.
