DAY TO DAY CIRCUS LIFE
There's no such thing as a typical week on the circus!
Our schedule includes a variety of venues and technical requirements, so each week can be quite different from the last.
Academy students will constantly learn new work-related skills as they perform the general tasks that touring requires, such as tent construction, costume repair, water and electrics set up, props maintenance and much, much more.
To give a rough guide as to how a week on tour might look....
Day 1: Move to our event venue, set up the living quarters and mark out for the tent construction.
Day 2: Build-up the big-top and take the rest of the day off for skills practice, shopping or sightseeing.
Day 3, 4 & 5: Up to nine hours of scheduled training, rehearsal and circus duties each day.
Day 6: Morning training and public performances through the day with “open-ring” practice in the evening.
Day 7: Morning training and public performances, then dismantle the big-top and pack down to move on.
