Circus Nite In  (1).jpg

Drop the kids off with us for a fun-filled night at the circus school!

We start off with coach-led games to blow off some energy, then 90+ minutes of supervised open play on the aerial circus equipment.  To wrap up the night, we grab our pillows and/or stuffies and get to munch on free popcorn while we watch a movie projection on top of the mats.

Show Team Audition Notice (1).png

Date: Saturday, May 25

Time: 2:30 - 5:00pm

Ages: 12 - 17

You do not need to be a student of the Rising to audition.

The Show Team is The Rising's Student performance team for ages 12-17.  We are looking for students who have a love for the circus arts, a strong desire to perform, and would like to take their circus training beyond a recreational level.  Students must show a love of performance/showmanship, a strong training ethic in class, and meet the strength & flexibility requirements. The Show Team trains year-round (July 2024 - June 2025) to create a full-length circus show performed at The Rising's Studio to a public audience every June.

We encourage ALL who may be interested to attend our audition.  Even if you don’t meet all of our requirements yet, we would like to see you!  You just never know!  And it will help you better prepare for next year’s audition should you wish to try again.

Testing will include the following:

  • flexibility, strength, tumbling, dance, acting, and ability to learn and perform 2 short sequences on 2 of the 4 apparatus - silk, hoop, hammock, or trapeze.

  • Flexibility: Full Splits all directions, backbend with straight arms/legs, pancake straddle, folded pike nose to knees

  • Strength: Chin ups, leg lifts, skin the cats, silk climbs,  single knee hang, inversions on silk

  • Acrobatics: cartwheel, fwd and bwd roll, shoulder roll, back or front walkover, tick tocks, headstand, handstand

  • Any additional special skills? (eg. juggling, unicycling, singing, diabolo, etc.) if you have a special skill please be prepared to show us specific skills (eg. 3 juggling patterns or diabolo tricks you can do confidently) or prepare a short piece (1-2 minutes max of singing a song).

  • * students do not need to come with any prepared material or act*
