Circus Arts – Props

Hey mom, can I have a set of flaming clubs for my birthday?

For a Circus Artist, this would be a normal request.  At Encore, circus artists are exposed to a wide variety of prop acts throughout their learning career within the circus department.  All of them start with juggling balls.  Hand and eye coordination is imperative to successfully being able to build a good juggling act.  This talent is fun and keeps people talking at parties, even if you aren’t the paid performer.  Circus performers have used juggling as a way to spark conversations with casting directors and overall using it as a way to spark conversation.

Depending on the circus productions being done on a campus each year, prop acts will vary.  Performers are exposed to a variety of prop used in the circus and given the opportunity to build their own acts.
