Training Memberships

In response to the limited support available to circus artists, we are pleased to offer memberships, which provide access to our space and equipment so that artists may deepen their training and research outside of classes or rehearsals. Members may be approved for our general Training Membership, or the Ground-Only Membership. We also offer a discounted Professional Membership to support professional performing artists.

When can I train?
Once your membership is approved, you may come in and train whenever the gym is open and there is space available. There is no limit to “how much” you use the gym, though there are some limits to “when.” The gym is open Monday - Friday 10 am - 4 pm, as well as evenings or weekends when we have other classes running.  Circus Project classes and private lessons have first priority for aerial points or other equipment that they might need - please be respectful of this. Also note that equipment and space needs may vary between classes, and even over the course of a single class - please check in with the coach or front desk staff if you have any questions about what space is available. Once your membership is approved, you will receive access to a Google calendar that shows space availability so you can plan your training times.

Membership Holds:
If you need to take a break from training with us, we can put your membership on hold for a maximum of 3 months, free of charge. While your membership is on hold, you will not pay your membership dues, but you can re-activate your membership upon return without the need to complete a new assessment or application. If you would like to place a hold on your membership, please email frontdesk@thecircusproject.org with the exact dates that you would like to start and end your membership freeze.
