Upcoming Auditions


TRAINING COMPANY

The Circus Project is now accepting applicants to the 2016-17 Training Company
Contact: Amelia Bear, Academy Coordinator:  Amelia@thecircusproject.org, 503.764.9174


The Circus Project is currently accepting applicants to the pre- professional Training Company Program for the 2016-2017 academic year.  The Circus Project’s Training Company (TCo) is a by-audition program preparing experienced and dedicated students to pursue their art with greater intensity and launch their careers, whether the next step is further study at a higher-level institute or venturing into coaching and performance.

Past TCo members have continued on to professional training programs at École de Cirque de Québec, New England Center for Circus Arts, Cirko Vertico, and the School of Acrobatics and New  Circus Arts, among others.

TCo members will train with master coaches Uys du Buisson (Peter Pan 360), Elisa Penello (Peter Pan 360), Russ Stark (Cirque du Soleil), Kari Jay Hunter (Teatro ZinZanni), Alicia Cutaia (BodyVox), and Noah Fassell (DreamAwake Productions).

All TCo students will enjoy individual mentorships and one-on-one training with chosen master coaches. The nine-month curriculum includes training in tumbling, partner acrobatics, hand balancing, dance, physical theater, and a range of aerial apparatus. The year will begin with a focus on all-around skill building; time dedicated to specialty training will increase as the year progresses.

TCo students will work towards audition readiness by mid-year in the arenas of strength, flexibility, vocabulary, and audition pieces. Additionally, all TCo members will create performance-ready acts by year-end, and benefit from multiple Work-In- Progress showings for constructive critique by select panels of regional professional circus artists. In addition to dedicated group and one-on- one training, TCo students will be granted Community Memberships and allowed unlimited independent training time in our beautiful, centrally located 4,184 sq. ft. facility that features a range of aerial apparatus, cyr wheels, Chinese Poles, spotting belt, dance studio, shower, and lounge.

Ideal TCo candidates are over the age of 17 with a background in movement disciplines such as dance, gymnastics, martial arts, parkour, diving, or ice skating, and a desire to bring their passion for the circus arts to the next level!

To apply, please contact Amelia@thecircusproject.org. Local auditions begin August 13, 2016.  Distance audition materials are due by August 22, 2016.
