PERFORMANCE CLASSES

PERFORMANCE CLASS

SUNDAY 7PM - 8:30PM Mike Hirschbach

How do you create a character, or develop an initial idea through to a finished performance piece? What do you do if something goes wrong on stage (as it will), & hold the audiences attention from the moment you walk on stage? 

Each 8-week session will focus on a different aspect of performance, & though no previous experience is necessary, students should be prepared to work towards becoming stronger performers.

MIXED LEVEL AERIAL PERFORMANCE

WEDNESDAY 8PM - 9:30PM CHENISE HACHÉ

This class is for intermediate and advanced students who are already familiar with some basic moves on silks. It is for any student who wants to get into the nitty gritty of silks theory and technique, build a strong foundation, increase endurance in the air, and learn more complex choreography. This is for students who want to improve performance skills and those who just want a good workout. Get ready to be challenged and be creative!

Watch skills and fitness develop hand in hand under Kyle's instruction, assuming you’re not afraid of getting a little sweaty.

Where to find us!

 

Halifax Circus, located in downtown Halifax, is a non-profit cooperative of professional circus artists and teachers. In 2015 we celebrated out 10th Anniversary with a series of special shows, new classes and workshops, and guest performers.

Our teachers have performed with the Cirque du Soleil and Ringling Brothers, and taught and performed at festivals in Singapore, Hong Kong, Europe, India, the U.S., Alaska, Africa, Mexico, Costa Rica, the Yukon and across Canada. Check out our classes‎ and be part of the excitement at Halifax Circus.

We have a threefold mission: to practice and perform circus work at the highest level, to teach those skills to students at our school, and to work with youth at risk through our social circus initiatives.
