Sitka Cirque Offers Many Performance Opportunities

Inspiring Creativity

Friends of Sitka Circus Arts (FOSCA), created in July 2016, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission “to support Sitka Cirque in promoting wellness, creativity, and exploration within safe spaces and broadening the accessibility to and involvement in circus arts.”


In collaboration with Sitka Cirque, FOSCA produces two circus shows a year.  


When you register for class, please let us know if you/your child plan to participate in the winter or spring cirque performances. Performing is not a requirement. If you do not want to perform, this will not affect your participation in class.

Under the Big Top goes to Outer Space!

Sitka Cirque is going in search of new acts for their circus extravaganza.  We’ve scoured the earth from East to West and North to South for the best acts in this world.  Now we are headed to the mystery of the stars to find new acts. This year's production will feature all the weird, wonderful & wacky that space has to offer.  

All rehearsals happen in class. 

There will be 1 show/day for both weekends. All shows are evening shows.

You must be a Kinder level student or older to perform.

Students will be charged the price of their costume tax for class pieces. 

Troupe students will be charged for their class costume + $20-$30 rental for their costume for their troupe piece.

Costume fees are not refundable, but you will get to keep your class costume.
