Maintaining stable cohorts for our school-aged students is a top priority!

Circus in the time of COVID: All instructors, students, and Kinetic Arts Center staff must wear masks in the facility at all times. When possible, a minimum of six (6) feet of physical distancing should be observed.  As of Feb 1, 2022, all clients 12+ years will be required to show a valid COVID-19 vaccine record with a photo ID or negative test accompanied by a doctor’s exemption note.  There will be a quick health screening at the top of each class meeting. If you or your child are exhibiting any COVID-related symptoms, please notify us ASAP and STAY HOME.  We will always honor any unused classes due to this illness.  Your privacy is always our top concern and we will never share any of your health-related information.

Here are a few pointers to ensure your camper has the best circus experience possible.

Please budget a little extra time at drop-off: you must be present for check-in and the brief health screening.If you plan to have someone else pick up your student, please let the front desk know ahead of time. Please alert staff upon check-in if your child has any special needs/restrictions. Ex. Nut allergy, diabetes, asthma, etc.

  • What to Bring:
    • Wear one mask and bring two backups.
    • Water bottle
  • What to Wear:
    • Wear loose, layered clothing (no jeans, belts, buckles, zippers).
    • Sweatshirt or a light layer for those chilly mornings.
    • Leggings and tights are great but not required. If your student prefers tights make sure they are footless for better grip on our equipment.
    • Bring with or wear tennis shoes for stilt class and outdoor playtime. General circus training will happen indoors and barefoot.
    • Hair should be pulled back in a ponytail or braid if long.
