We operate the oldest year-round Circus Teen Troupe in New York and New Jersey.
No prior experience in the performing arts is necessary to join our Circus Teen Troupe: only a desire and a commitment to learn (and be aged 13 – 18). We train young people from all socio-economic backgrounds the skills and lessons that circus offers: how to juggle everything life throws them, how to balance on others shoulders, how to cooperate with members of diverse communities and how to create human pyramids of understanding.
Teen Troupe members learn how to teach children circus arts skills, perform about 12 times a year at Circus Family Fun Nights, and tour with an annual show. Each Troupe member puts in over 200 hours of Community Service a year.
Teen Troupe members have found that being in a real circus as a high school student, and writing their college essay about their experience, has set them apart from the other application essays.
To join the AGC! Teen Troupe, please call Mr. Amazing at 845-348-8740. July 1 is the deadline for Fall acceptance.
