The Junior Ring Masters Program is for students aged 8yrs – 16yrs whose enthusiasm for circus arts goes beyond that of the recreational student.
Their keen interest and advanced natural ability will be fostered by experienced upper-level coaches who will work with the students to build a strong foundation in multiple areas of circus arts, while maintaining a fun and exciting training atmosphere.
The Junior Ring Masters Program is designed as a performance development program; students enrolled in the Junior Ring Masters Program will be exposed to performance opportunities, with our final presentation being the opening act of the Ring Masters Year end Show in June.
