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 session.

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

Please contact us at 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 8-week session?

Of course! If you want to try some circus but aren't sure if you can commit to our 8-week session you can sign up for a Taster Class. During a Taster Class prospective students will have the opportunity to try a wide variety of circus disciplines in one action-packed workshop! Alternately, some prospective students chose to try circus by taking a private lesson in the discipline of their choice. If you'd like to request a solo private lesson or group private lesson please submit a lesson request on our Private Lessons page.

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.

What is the class make-up policy? I have to miss a class this session.

All students may make up a missed class by attending an Open Studio or Play Hour (age dependent) at no cost. Adult Open Studio, Youth Open Studio, and Play Hour times can be found HERE. 

Adult students (ages 16+) have the option to make up a missed class by attending one of the weekly 60-minute drop-in classes listed on the Calendar. Drop-in classes are listed in dark brown. Drop-in class spots must be reserved in advance to avoid over-booking a class. Instructions for how to reserve your spot can be found in our Studio Policies.

Our full Make-up/Missed Class policy is available HERE!

What is your refund policy?

Refunds for session classes are granted only in the case of extraordinary circumstances and at the discretion of C3 management. In the case of a refund there is 5% fee. Please check your schedule before signing up for classes! Find our full refund policies listed in our Studio Policies page for more information.

What factors determine the pricing of programs at C3?

Prices at C3 are influenced by our dedication to maintaining a safe facility with up-to-date equipment, providing quality instruction with low student/teacher ratios, and to paying our instructors an industry-leading wage.
