Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need prior experience to do circus?

None of our 101-level classes require any previous experience, and we welcome students of any age and fitness level! You’ll be amazed at the strength and confidence you can develop over a single 12-week session.


I’ve done circus before, so what level should I choose?

Please contact us at info@commonwealthcircus.com to set up an evaluation with one of our instructors, and we will find the best level for you!


May I try circus before signing up for a full 12-week session?

Of course! Keep posted for Taster Classes and other drop in opportunities come September, 2017. You can try a variety of circus disciplines in one action-packed workshop! In addition, come September you will be able to request a private or group lesson in the discipline of your choice.


How do I prepare for my first class?

Arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled start to fill out our waiver. Wear comfortable athletic clothes that cover your legs and armpits. You can bring a water bottle, a snack, and a notebook.
