All students (and parents/guardians of children under 18) must register online and sign a waiver in order to participate.
If you are registering for a class on behalf of a participant under the age of 18, please be sure to register under the participant's name, not your own. Use the appropriate birthdate on the participant's Mindbody account to prevent registration errors.

Please arrive on time for classes. The warm-up is an integral part of circus training. Students that arrive more than 15 minutes late will not be allowed to participate, though they are welcome to stay and observe the rest of class.
WE DO NOT OFFER MAKE-UP CLASSES. We do appreciate knowing in advance if students will not be able to attend (either by phone or email). We will do our best to reschedule any classes that are cancelled due to weather.
WE HAVE A FIRM 24-HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY for all drop-in classes and private lessons.
We request that all students and visitors do not use synthetic fragrances such as perfume or cologne while in our studio. Unscented deodorant, soap, lotion or other personal care products are welcome. Natural products scented with essential oils are also permitted. The Circus Project uses only natural and unscented cleaning products. Basic personal care products are available in the restroom for your use. This policy is for the health and safety of our community members with multiple chemical sensitivities.
What to wear/bring
Form fitting, stretchy clothing that covers the full legs, belly and armpits to protect the skin and avoid getting caught.
Please do not wear tights with feet, jewelry, or clothing with zippers, buttons, or metal that could catch on fabric.
Please wear deodorant. Sweat and stink is part of the circus, however both out of respect for others and the equipment, preventative measures are deeply appreciated.
Please bring a water bottle to rehydrate, we do have filtered water on our sink for filling.
Circus Project Staff Providing Transportation to Minors Policy
Circus Project staff are not to be alone with a minor except for these extenuating circumstances.
Parents/guardians are responsible for providing or finding transportation for students first and foremost
Should a student under 18 need a ride, in the case of an emergency or if it seems they will not otherwise be able to get home safely:
Circus Project staff member will call parent/guardian for approval
If the parent/guardian does not answer leave a message stating the situation and plan
Before making the drive notify the Education Director or Manager via text of the need and plan for a student to get a ride home with a staff member or student.
The Education Director or Manager will follow up with the parents/guardians to discuss plans for future rides
If the coach is aware of another student offering to give a ride to the minor the above protocol should be followed as well.
Parents, guests & family members
It is your choice to either stay and observe your child's class or return for pick-up when class has finished. We have seating in our mezzanine which is the area designated for observing classes or waiting for students.
The Circus Project strives to provide an atmosphere of safety and creativity in which people feel able to participate, express themselves, and be heard independently of their gender, race, color, religion, physical handicap, mental diagnosis, national or ethnic origin, social status, age, size, sexual orientation, or gender identification.
The Circus Project reserves the right to dismiss any person we feel is a threat to themselves or to the safety of others at any time.
