Frequently Asked Questions
What if I don’t know anything about circus?
That’s okay! Cirq-U is where you come to learn, which means that no experience is required. Each class is tailored to each student’s skill and fitness level so there is no need to worry about your ability.
What should I bring?
A water bottle & a good attitude!
What do I wear?!
It is highly recommended that you wear fitted athletic clothing, preferably clothes that will cover the back of your knees such as leggings or joggers. Please try to avoid wearing anything that could grab or snag onto the equipment. Please try to avoid: Very loose fitted clothing, zippers, dangling jewelry, or watches; we especially do not recommend wearing jeans!
What exactly should I expect?
Each 101 class will cycle between different apparatus so you’ll get to try out various circus skills to find what you like best. After you have decided on what you like, we will work with you to develop a focus for you to work on.
