Hello Kansas City Circus Community,
The 2017 Performance Company Auditions will be held on January 29th at 4:30pm. All are welcome!
Please prepare a 90 second routine that you feel shows off your strengths. To sign-up email Nicky at firstname.lastname@example.org and list your apparatus. Music is optional. Attire: training clothes. If you are new to Lucia, please arrive a few minutes early to fill out a waiver. Auditionees will participate in a group warm up, team building games, presentations, and group cool down. We will send you all an email with the cast list by the following Thursday. Performance company membership is $25/week. This covers a 2 hour mandatory group rehearsal every Sunday from 4:30 to 6:30 as well as a weekly Act Development class. (We are keeping the price as low as possible because we want this to be accessible!).
Sunday sessions will be a time for students to work side by side with Apprentice and Professional members of the Performance Company focusing on movement quality and stage presence in addition to aerial and floor skills to create a versatile group capable of ensemble and solo performances. We are delighted to announce that Angelina Sansone of the Kansas City Ballet will be joining our staff to coach movement!
Among the performances, we will be participating in this year are National Dance Week on April 8th and the Fringe Festival July 20th-30th.
Performance Company Members are not guaranteed a slot in every performance, but they will be the pool from which we draw artists to represent Lucia. By auditioning for the company, you are committing to be on the team; doing your best when you are featured and supporting and encouraging your peers when they are featured. We are looking forward to working with you all and continuing to build a strong circus community!
