IV: What Can You Expect to Gain from CircusLab
From CircusLab, you will gain a lot. If you are shy, it will help you come out of your shell. If you like to perform, but not speak to an audience, it will help you overcome that. You will feel and be stronger. You could learn really cool skills like clowning, improv, synchro tumbling, partner aero, acro-gymnastics, parkour, hand-balancing, juggling, stilt walking, and much more. We become such good friends, we are like family. We get together for costume making parties, social events, and go to performances together, like: Cirque du Soleil, Cirque du Symphonie, Circus Center, and college gymnastics meets. Here’s what other CircusLab students had to say about what we’ve gained from our experience the past year:
“Of course, there is the chance to train 5 more hours a week and improve your tumbling skills. On the other side of things, there are more moral benefits like meeting amazing new people, making loyal friends who will never let you fall - sometimes literally. Becoming part of this community has been one of the best experiences of my life.” — Louka
“The greatest benefit for me is that I am now more comfortable with meeting new people and becoming friends with them. Before CL, I was always very nervous about who I will meet and what would happen. Now I am comfortable when I go to new classes and auditions, I don’t need a friend with me.” — Masai
“CircusLab has allowed me to express myself in a creative way, allowing me to truly be myself.” — Izzy
“My greatest benefit from CircusLab is my tumbling. I have improved so much in just the last 2 years that I have done CircusLab!” — Bailey
V: How Can I Get in CircusLab?
CircusLab training is at AcroSports. If I’ve encouraged you to try out, you can prepare something to show off your own specialties, but don’t worry if you can’t think of anything. Just come and try out. If you make it, you’ll want to choose your specialties wisely because you can’t do everything and you’ll probably want to, like me. Good Luck! See you there.
