How to Join the FSU Circus
Any current student at FSU is eligible to become a part of the FSU Flying High Circus. We accept new students at the beginning of each Fall semester. There are many opportunities for students to become involved in the Circus in both performing as well as behind the scenes in production (sound, lighting, costumes, stage management, etc.). There is no experience necessary to audition for the circus. The majority of new students in our program have had no previous circus experience.

Expectations of Circus Cast and Crew
Membership in the FSU goes beyond the on-stage performance. There are expectations that must be met by our cast and crew throughout the school year. You will be expected to attend all of your rehearsals (a minimum of an hour and a half per week), put in time helping with the daily rigging and work at the circus lot (another hour or two each week), and maintain an expected level of strength and flexibility through daily stretching and conditioning if you are training to perform. There will also be occasional workdays on the weekend, which will be mandatory. ALL shows and show rehearsals are mandatory. Please make sure that you are able and willing to dedicate the appropriate amount of time to the circus when making your decision to join.
