Circus in the Time of COVID

Kinetic Arts Center adheres to COVID-19 related directives from Alameda County, the State of California, and the City of Oakland and augments these with industry-specific safety standards. Please visit our FAQ page or HERE for more 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 – LABELED
  • 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.
