ANNOUNCING OUR SUMMER 2020 SHOW THEME!
2050. On an alien planet at the edge of the known universe, a beacon blinks in glittering darkness. A crew of maverick space explorers spin out of Earth’s orbit into the vast unknown on a rescue mission clouded in the mystery surrounding their leader—a controversial, brilliant entrepreneur with limitless resources and murky intentions. Alien conspiracy theories, adventure, and comedy abound in this high-flying, sci-fi fantasy spanning from Area 51 across the galaxy to a world of unimaginable beauty and ancient civilizations. Explore lush rainforests, fly with primordial beasts, and uncover the cataclysmic secret at the heart of a distant planet. Circus Juventas. August 2020. We are not alone.
OUR SPRING 2020 SHOW THEME WILL BE...CIRCUS REWIND!
Coming in 2020, Circus Juventas will be wrapping up our 25th anniversary year with a glorious celebration of…Circus Juventas! Join us for our Spring Celebration Performances as we walk, leap, flip, spin, and fly down memory lane to revisit our greatest hits, favorite music, most memorable moments, and magnificent milestones. This spring at CJ, it will be a high-flying history tour you’ll never forget!
MEET OUR NEW DEVELOPMENT INTERN, SHANNON HARTLE
Shannon recently moved to the Twin Cities after graduating with a BFA in dance, a minor in communication studies, and a certificate in entrepreneurship in performing arts from the University of Iowa. Some of her previous work experience includes teaching for the University of Iowa Youth Ballet, being an artistic team member of the Iowa Dance Festival, and serving as an administrative office intern for the Hollins MFA Dance program.
Shannon is a dancer and performed work all throughout Iowa, Chicago, NYC, Virginia, Missouri, and more. Her favorite dance achievement is choreographing, producing, and performing in a little coffee shop show with some of her best friends. Before Shannon went to college, she graduated high school early to train and perform in NYC with the Joffrey Ballet School.
Shannon is so thrilled to be here at Circus Juventas and learn more about all things circus. You can find her preparing for the 2019 gala alongside development director Nicole.
A NEW COACH AT CJ: JAVEN ULAMBAYAR
Javen Mungun Ulambayar (Mooj) joined Circus Juventas in 2006, which is where he attained his skills. Upon graduation from the University of Minnesota, he taught full time as head coach at the Actors Gymnasium in Evanston, IL, fostering skills for aspiring students and working on their show productions.
He has performed with Midnight Circus and Lookingglass Theatre’s “Moby Dick”, refreshing and broadening his interest of the infusion of circus arts in theater. He has recently toured with Cirque Mechanics’ “42ft” and currently lives in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. He also devotes his free time to home brewing, enjoying experimenting with craft beers.
Javen will be coaching Acrobatics and Revolving Chinese Poles under the big top this fall—be sure to give him a warm welcome back to CJ!
