Circus Performance: Presence & Intention


Learn how to captivate your audience! This workshop will focus on the foundational skills of circus performance, and participants will leave with a greater understanding of how to connect with their audience and present an act that is not only technically impressive, but engaging and affecting as well.


This is an all-levels workshop, but participants should have enough skills mastered to be able to do a very short sequence. A variety of aerial apparatus will be provided and ground skills are also welcome. Please contact Elsie at [email protected] for any questions about apparatus or equipment options.
