Sitka Cirque offers many performance opportunities
Spring Recital: April 24th-25th, May 1st-2nd
This recital will be held at the Sitka Cirque studio, and will be a rotating cast of 10 performers per show. We are hoping to have all levels and ages at each performance, but every performance will be a little different. Audience members will be kept to around 50 people, and everyone in the building will be required to social distance and wear a mask. If Sitka is looking unsafe to hold in person shows as we approach this date, we will be performing virtually instead.
Troupe is for students that would like to perform and learn how to build choreography.

Troupe is one of my favorite classes as it gives students an opportunity to be creative and take their practice to a whole new level. In troupe we start to focus on developing students ability to dance in the air by discovering and encouraging their individuals style. As part of Troupe students will have the opportunity to create their own solo for our student showcases, as well as to perform for other school and community events. In class we will be learning how to choreograph, think about themes, costumes and music. We’ll be exploring movement through games, improvisation and discussion. It is a great time to meet cirque students from other levels, compare skills, hang out and share your passion for flying!
For students that don’t want to perform, troupe is still be a great opportunity to learn choreography and develop material. We encourage students who do not want to perform but would still like to be involved in the show to join our amazing stage crew and help with sets, costume, rigging & face paint/makeup ideas.
Students will also have the opportunity to audition for a solo, duet or second group piece for our Spring Productions.
Sitka Cirque will be bringing Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' to life! Come to a festival style performance with food, drinks, games, aerialists, dancers, live music and more! It will be an experience unlike anything seen in Sitka before! Date TBD
