Spring Session is here!
That means a new choreographer, more workshop offerings, and we are one step closer to our Spring Celebration Performances. Learn more about all these exciting events below.
WELCOME NEW CHOREOGRAPHER, DARE KUJAWA
Circus Juventas is excited to announce a new choreographer to our staff! Dare Kujawa has been a professional dancer all over the U.S. (including being a top 20 contestant on So You Think You Can Dance!) Dare will be working on Spring Show choreography starting in February. Please say “Hello” when you see him in the building. Welcome, Dare!
Dare Kujawa is originally from Maplewood, MN and studied at the Larkin Dance Studio. You may recognize Dare from TV’s Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. His circus credits include two Cirque de Soleil shows: Beatles LOVE and Mystere. He was awarded the West Coast National Elite Male Champ in 2009, and he has continued his training with some of the leading choreographers and artists in the business including Kristine W, Debra Cox, Queen Latifah, and the Jonas Brothers.
COURTNEY GIANNONE BACK FOR MORE CYR WHEEL WORKSHOPS
Circus Juventas welcomes back Cyr Wheel artist, Courtney Giannone! She will be visiting CJ during our traditional “Workshop Week” February 13-17. There are a variety of workshop offerings for advanced, intermediate, and beginning Cyr Wheel students.

HOW TO REGISTER FOR SPRING SESSION
During Winter registration, students had the option of auto-enrolling to keep their classes the same for Spring Session. If you selected this option in the online system, CJ will enroll your student in the exact same classes they’ve been taking and send an email letting you know a new statement has been uploaded to your account. Once you’ve viewed the statement to ensure its accuracy, pay the amount due and your spots are confirmed! (Once payment has been processed, you will still receive a final email confirmation from us.)
For those of you who did not select the auto-enroll option, when returning student families log-in to register, you will have the option of choosing between two forms: one that will allow you to make changes to your class schedule or the other to keep your classes the same. (This is the exact same way Winter registration was set up.)
MAKING CHANGES FORM:
If you would like to add, drop, or switch a class(es), choose this form, make your adjustments, hit submit, and wait for a confirmation. (You’ll get an email from us once your classes are finalized!)
KEEPING CLASSES THE SAME FORM:
If you want to keep your class(es) exactly AS IS, choose this form, select payment method, hit submit, and you’re done!
Students who are new to the program or did not take classes during the Winter Session will have a registration form that provides appropriate class options for their age group (Toddler/Kinder, Adult, Youth Program, Wings/Out of the Chair).
WHAT ARE “BEST BET” CLASSES?
Our “Best Bets” pages are a condensed list of classes that have the highest chance of accommodating more students. Since we are getting closer to our Spring Show performances, we are only able to add students to non-performing classes in the Spring Session. We recommend taking a look at these narrowed-down options as a good starting point for those who have not yet been enrolled or who are looking to add/change their current class roster. You can also filter on “Best Bets” classes in our online Class Finder.

SPRING SHOW PERFORMER INFORMATION
Despite all the snow on the ground, our Spring Shows are just around the corner! Information on costumes, accessories, performing status, performance dates, extra practices, and more can all be found on the Spring Show Announcements tab to the left. (Or click the link below to go directly to the page.) This information should prepare families for what to expect at the spring performances until specific show assignments are available at the annual not-to-be-missed Spring Show Meeting, February 25, 2017 at 4pm. Mark your calendars!
Spring Show Meeting:
February 25, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.
This important informational meeting about the Spring Show is not only where you’ll find out which SHOW TEAM(s) your student will perform on this year, but it alsincludes ticket-buying details, show-day procedures, and volunteer opportunities. This meeting is especially helpful for new families, but it is also a great reminder for everyone who has a student performing in the Spring Show.

COMING SUMMER 2017...
The Nine Realms of the old Norse legends. Realms of light and dark, of elves and giants, mist and fog. Creatures who dwell in fire and ice seek to bring the end, but can it be stopped? By a band of rogue Vikings, perhaps? The glitteringly powerful Goddesses of Asgard? The mighty God of Thunder? Or perhaps one mere mortal? Will it be the end or the beginning? In summer 2017, join Circus Juventas and dive deep into the well of Norse mythology with an exciting, untold tale of adventure, intrigue, and magic, cycling through time and dimensions. A swirling, swinging, high-flying journey from the green pastures of Norway across the Bifrost to realms unseen awaits…
