Circus Spire & Circus Gilly Auditions

Circus Spire and Circus Gilly auditions will be held later in the summer than usual this year. We’re doing this to give auditionees adequate time to rebuild circus skills now that Kinetic Arts Center is able to welcome students back into the facility for camps, classes, and specialty audition prep training. There are TWO options for the audition this year: in person or by video submission.


Audition Materials Due: Monday, July 19, 2021

In-Person Auditions (by appointment): Sunday, July 25, 2021

We are Seeking Serious Circus Students for Circus Spire & Circus Gilly Performance Youth Troupe for the 2021-2022 Season!

Preparing For Auditions

Preparing an act for an audition can be a daunting task. We have the following resources available for auditionees:

Act Creation for Gilly/Spire Auditions: A Series With Colin Epstein 
Sundays, June 13 – July 18, 2021 (no class on July 4, 2021)
Each class is limited to eight (8) students: 9 – 10:30 am or 11 – 12:30 pm

This class is designed for aspiring circus performers who already have ground-based or aerial skills they can draw upon to build an act for the audition. Students must enroll for the series – no drop-ins permitted.  

SUPERVISED Youth Open Gym – Gilly & Spire Audition Prep Time
Saturdays, June 12 – July 24, 2021
Each meeting time is limited to eight (8) students: 10:45 am – 12:45 pm

Run your act as many times as possible before the audition date! A coach will be onsite and able to answer any questions. Attendance is limited to eight (8) students. Pre-registration is required ($25 per visit).


In Both Programs We are Looking for Students with Skills in the Following Areas:

  • Acrobatics/Gymnastics

We are looking for students that are committed to the rigorous training required to succeed in our Circus Spire and Circus Gilly – and who approach that training with enthusiasm and excitement! 

Please remember that every performer brings something unique to a circus ensemble. Some artists are strong, some are flexible, some have exceptional balance, some are graceful and some are outrageously funny. There are circus artists who have only one of these traits and some who have multiple strengths. We are most interested in seeing what you can do and are not concerned with the things you cannot do…yet.
