CircEsteem’s Performance Troupe is designed for experienced youth seeking to advance their skills to the next level and participate in performance opportunities through CircEsteem. While a great portion of time is spent toward skill building and act creation, this program also focuses on social/emotional skill building: topics may include self-advocacy, healthy relationships, nutrition, and responsible decision-making.
5-8pm – Team: M, W, F
5-8pm – Club: T, F
9am-1pm – Team and Club are automatically enrolled in CYC and CDI on Saturdays
CircEsteem’s Performance Troupe is made up of two programs:
Club is for youth who want to develop their circus and performance skills, benefit from being part of the CircEsteem community, and commit 10 hours a week.
This program is for youth ages 10-18 and works in parallel with Team.
Club meets on Tuesday and Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.
Registration for Club requires prior class or camp experience with CircEsteem or similar youth circus group.
Team takes place four days a week for a total of 13 hours and gives its members the opportunity to focus more intensely on achieving higher level circus, performance skills and physical fitness, as well as introducing them to leadership and mentoring opportunities.
This program is for youth ages 13-18 and requires an audition to join.
Team meets on Monday, Wednesday & Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.
The youth who participate in Performance Troupe are required to maintain good grades at school and to support the younger children of CircEsteem through the Teen Leadership program.
For direct inquiries, please contact the Performance Troupe Coordinator, Elsa Thompson.
Youth ages 14 and older can earn service learning hours by aiding the CYC program.
Responsibilities will be delegated by the Program Coordinator and may include:
Participation in the Teen Leadership Program is required for all Team members, and teen youth who wish to work at Summer Camp or be paid for Workshops.
