SPRING PERFORMANCE SESSION 2014
Beginning Saturday, March 15, Circus Atlantic, the recreational circus program of the Circus Conservatory of America, begins a new session which will culminate in a public circus performance in Portland June 6-7. Weekly specialty and general classes will be held on Saturdays in the Reiche Community School gym in Portland’s West End.

GENERAL CIRCUS ARTS CLASSES
All students interested in being part of this Performance Session should enroll in the General Circus Arts Class which will run for 12 weeks. The program offers instruction in a variety of circus disciplines including trapeze, lyra, fabric, acrobatics, juggling, diabolo, unicycling, pyramids and performance techniques. As the Session progresses, students will begin to work on the creation of the public performance.

Tuition for the 12-week Spring Performance Session is $325. REGISTER HERE

SPECIALTY CLASSES
Students may also supplement this general class by attending specialty classes in Acrobatics, Juggling, or Aerials. This will allow further training in a specific area of interest. These classes are offered Saturday mornings at Reiche Community School and tuition can be either paid by the class, or by using our Circus Atlantic Punchcard which offers a discount on 10 hours of class time. REGISTER HERE

THURSDAYS AT THE YMCA
From now until April vacation, classes will also be offered at the Greater Portland YMCA on Thursday afternoons and evenings. Students may drop-in to these or use their Punchcards.

PUNCH CARD PAYMENT PROGRAM
Our Punch Card Program allows students to choose a-la-carte class time and explore specific disciplines in depth. Punch cards are $180 each and have a face value worth $200 of class time — a total of 10 class hours. You may purchase these by check or cash immediately prior to class, or buy online in advance. Save by purchasing a PUNCH CARD here.

Once you have a punch card you can go to any class you wish. If it’s a 60 minute class, one hour will be withdrawn from your balance of 10 hours. If it’s a 90 minute class, 1.5 hours are withdrawn. Come whenever you wish, but you should come regularly to get the most out of the class.

SUMMER CIRCUS ARTS CAMPS
Circus Atlantic and North Yarmouth Academy (NYA)  are partnering to offer weekly circus arts camps for rising 2nd through 7th graders. Whether this is a child’s first exposure to the circus basics or whether they are ready to delve deeper into specific skills and work on character development, professional circus artists are ready to help all students jump in the ring. Aerials, acrobatics, juggling, unicycling, pyramids and performance techniques are just some of the skills campers will have the opportunity to develop. REGISTER FOR SUMMER CAMPS on the NYA website.
