Covid Updates

Dear Circus Families,

Sitka Cirque is open for in person class! Everyone entering the cirque area is required to wear a mask and follow our social distancing protocol.

Travel policy update as of March 30th 2021: 

If you have been fully vaccinated and have traveled, you may return to class as long as you have not developed any symptoms of covid. If you are not fully vaccinated and have traveled out of Alaska you can either: quarantine for 2 weeks OR have received two negative tests (one at the airport AND a second negative test 7-10 days after arriving in Sitka). For now, if you are traveling in Alaska we will not require quarantine from class. IF SITKA’S CASE LOAD/RISK LEVEL INCREASES WE WILL RETURN TO OUR MORE INTENSIVE TRAVEL POLICY THAT INCLUDES TRAVEL IN ALASKA.

We will not be revising any other covid policies at this time, if you want to review our covid policies, click the button below. 

We ask that Cirque students continue to be cautious outside of classes. Wearing masks, avoiding crowds and frequents handwashing are good ways to keep numbers low in Sitka and allow small businesses to remain open!

You Can Fly

Run away to the Circus without leaving Sitka!

At the intersection of creativity, strength, flexibility, and rhythm, circus arts combine the best of gymnastics and dance to enhance your physical abilities, boost your self-confidence, and expand your imagination. We perform in Sitka multiple times a year and offer classes for ages 3-100.

Founded and led by expert aerialist, choreographer, and professional dancer, Frances Donohoe, Cirque welcomes students of every age, from toddlers to retirees and everything in between. As you gain strength, balance, endurance, and flexibility, you will proceed to more advanced levels, explore new equipment, and learn new skills, all in Southeast Alaska's premier circus arts studio.
