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 email@example.com 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!
