Program & Activity Info

We are aiming to experiment with using The UNCAAGED Way of Life as a way to engage everyone in a different way around circus arts. As the acronym states, we believe that circus and aerial arts can be an effective to to "Amplify Glee, Equity, & Discovery." 

This opportunity is really open to anyone to engage as a student or coach, however we want to also host 6 spots in this cohort that will offer BIPOC Priority enrollment if space becomes limited. The application only takes about 5-10mns!

Anyone applying should plan around attending on the Very First Session, September 27th.

*This is tentative reflection of the intention of the flow of each day. The agenda can vary or flex to accommodate the actual of what we do from one week to the next. *

We Prefer that everyone submit their own enrollment and agree to the terms themselves. However, if you are a guardian submitting you and your minors' enrollment you can use one registration for all of you and agree on the minors' behalf.


As a response to building a more welcoming environment through UNCAAGED, we will also begin facilitating a Professional Learning Community for circus professionals to be a part of the conversation around diversity and engagement of more racially underrepsented individuals in circus arts. Therefore, we will be looking for feedback that will help you feel more welcomes in these spaces.
