Youth Performance Troupe

Auditions are now open for new members, closing on Wednesday 23rd September. Successful applicants will be invited to join the troupe from Term 4, 2020.

Our Youth Performance Troupe is a Circus Akimbo program for high performing students. It is for students aged 25 or under who have demonstrated commitment and consistency in their training, and are looking for a new challenge and additional opportunities. Entry to this program is by audition or invitation only.

The troupe exists so students can work on higher level skills in a smaller group than in our other classes, with the intention of creating routines to perform. We choose students who are self-motivated and willing to push themselves to achieve amazing things.

To audition for this program, students should prepare a short routine in their chosen apparatus. The audition is an opportunity for students to show their current skill level, as well as their commitment to producing a routine.

Troupe classes run on Thursday afternoons during the school term, and most members continue to attend youth circus or teen aerials to further develop their skills. Students will get a troupe shirt and will participate in various performance opportunities throughout the year.

Interested students should apply for an audition by emailing with the following details:

  • Full name of student
  • Date of birth
  • Preferred apparatus
  • Brief description of circus and other related experience (for non-Akimbo students only)
  • A videoed routine of 2-5 mins on any apparatus

We look forward to hearing from you!
