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 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.
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.
