Youth Troupe Auditions

The Circus Spot is holding auditions to be a part of our youth troupe in 2019.

There are two troupes – our junior troupe called ‘The Mini Spots’ and our senior troupe called ‘The Little Spots’. Both troupes perform at a variety of festivals and events throughout the year, and in our annual student showcase – A Smorgasbord of Circus.

Applicants will need to attend a workshop audition on Saturday November 24th at 2pm . The session will be run as a circus class, and will be led by performing troupe coaches, Daniel, Emily and Free (there is no cost for this session).

Qualities we look for in troupe members

  • Ability to work in a group
  • Focus and perseverance within a circus class 

  • High level of skill in 2 of the following disciplines:
    • Tumbling
    • Aerials – in either Tissu, Trapeze, Aerial Hoop or Rope
    • Acrobalance
    • Manipulation – such as Juggling, Hula Hooping, Diabolo

Students will chose two disciplines that they would like to audition with. During the audition participants will go over skills in their two chosen disciplines. Additionally participants will be taken through group exercises and tasks to assess how they work in a group, and how they respond to new challenges.
