Youth Performance Troupe

Youth Performance Troupe

In Term 2, we’re starting a new program at Circus Akimbo Hornsby aimed at high performing students: a Youth Performance Troupe. This is designed 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 first round of auditions will be held in the afternoon on Thursday 18th April. Students should prepare a short routine to perform at the audition and be prepared to participate in some simple group work exercises. The main purpose of the afternoon is to see how students work in a group and how they respond to instruction, as well as provide valuable audition experience.

A small group of students will be selected to form the inaugural Circus Akimbo youth performance troupe. Troupe classes will run on Thursday afternoons during the school term, with an optional extra training session on Sunday afternoons. Students will get a free 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)

We look forward to hearing from you!
