Training will be held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 6-8 p.m., starting September 17. Students may sign up for one or both evenings. The session will culminate in a Fall Circus Showcase on December 6, and students will have the opportunity to audition for Circophony's winter main stage circus production.
Both evenings will feature general circus training - conditioning, acrobatics, object manipulation, physical comedy and ensemble - but Tuesdays will also offer a choice of intensive training in either Juggling or Contortion and Flexibility. Wednesday focus will be on all things acrobatic - partner acrobatics, tumbling and pyramids, as well as other circus skills.
All classes are held at Oddfellows Playhouse, 128 Washington Street in Middletown. Instructors are professional circus teaching artists and performers. Lead artists are Allison McDermott and Naja Muller, plus guest teachers. This is a chance to build your skills or start from scratch in a rigorous, fun, safe and non-competitive environment.
