It is a PREPARATORY Circus Arts Training program for students ages 8 – 15. Our preparatory program is an eight (8) week program that will be offered in the Fall and Spring seasons. The Academy Gold Troupe is designed to construct a solid base and provide an avenue from which circus students can advance and prepare for our Sailor Circus Academy Red Troupe Performance Program.
Our Academy Gold Troupe will build the student’s natural abilities, improve their strength & confidence and emphasize training safety, performance technique and performance etiquette. These skills are very important to develop well-rounded circus skills and to become a refined athletic circus arts performer.
The eight (8) week Academy Gold Troupe program consists of core classes four (4) days per week for seventy-five (75) minutes. Students will get the rare opportunity to experience quality instruction by Elite Professional Circus Arts Coaches and will train up to four (4) days per week in one or two time blocks depending on act(s).
As part of the Academy Gold Troupe, students will participate in a costumed, ticketed showcase, at the completion of each Fall and Spring season. Performances will be held at CAC’s beautiful air conditioned arena. Families and friends of students will have the wonderful opportunity to attend these live performances. Prior to the showcase, students will have a two weeks of rehearsals that will enable the student to be comfortable performing in front of a live audience. During the showcase students will experience the excitement of performing under bright lights, with colorful costumes, while learning about staging, performer etiquette and camaraderie.
At the Circus Arts Conservatory, we believe there is “something for everyone” in the Circus Arts. Students of all levels are welcomed to register. After registration is completed, students and parents will be required to attend a one hour orientation. Therefore, due to the intensity of the Academy Gold Troupe, it will require both student and parental commitment to ensure a successful experience. Our Academy Gold Troupe’s focus is to give our students the opportunity to experience and learn the many facets of the Circus Arts to include; Aerial Skills, Rebound & Balance Skills, Acrobatic Arts, Clowning, Specialty Acts and Performance Techniques. These are ALL essential to being a well rounded performer.
If you are interested in quality, progressive Circus Arts training, The Sailor Circus Academy Gold Troupe is the golden opportunity for you!
