We believe that a well-rounded performer benefits greatly from working with visiting artists, and Circus Juventas is committed to bringing the best of the best here to work with our students. While the majority of our guest artists work with our more advanced Summer Show performers, we do occasionally offer workshops to intermediate-level students in various genres.
If a student is eligible for upcoming workshops, CJ Administrative Staff will contact parents directly and direct them to this page for more information.
