Commonwealth Circus Center

Teen Act Creation Week

The C3 Teen Act Creation Week offers teens (ages 11-18) an opportunity to create both a solo and group act in just one week! Under the guidance of an instructor they will compose their own solo act in the morning session. In the afternoon the group of 6 students will work together with an instructor to create a multi-disciplinary group act that highlights each student's strengths. Teens will learn choreographic methods and approaches while adding to their repertoire of circus skills over the course of the week. Unlike the Youth Summer Program (open to ages 5-16yrs) the Teen Act Creation Week curriculum will be focused both on learning and show creation and will culminate in a more formal showcase at the end of the week.


Admission is open to students 11-18 years old of any level who have taken at least 1 session of circus class at C3 or elsewhere. Admission is by permission only and requires an application. Admission will be first come, first served.

To apply please email info@commonwealthcircus.com with the following:
-Name of teen participant
-Parent/guardian name and email address
-Age and birthday of teen participant
-Bullet list of previous circus experience (teachers you have worked with, classes taken, performances, etc.)
-Please indicate the kind of circus act you are interested in creating and why in 3 sentences only.

We will reply within one week of receiving your application. Payment and registration should be completed only after applications have been received and accepted.
