Uh.. good question... if you hate learning new, weird and wonderful skills, making friends and challenging your physical ability, this might not be the best society for you..
If however, you have always been interested in wanting to juggle, or do magic tricks, or ride a unicycle, or get paid to spin fire around (safely AUSA, don't worry), then come along!
If you're a beginner feel free to come along on Mondays! We're teaching several beginners workshops at the start of every term!
Thursdays practices are dedicated solely for showcase training. If you're not performing in the showcase and wish to practice independently you're very welcome to come on Thursdays as well. However, we won't be able to teach beginners on Thursdays.
We've had an amazing semester, our attendance skyrocketed from 5/6 attendees to 20-30 each week, thanks to everyone who came along!
We have big plans for next semester! Not to give too much away but *cough, Circus Showcase Extravaganza Spectacular at the end of the semester cough*(Name TBC)
Aerials and acrobatics are taught in collaboration with Inverted. As a society member you'll currently receive 45% discount of all their classes and you will also be able to attend private workshops they organize for the society. Find out more about their classes at https://invertedaberdeen.com/
We do paid and charity fire and LED performances, teach juggling workshops and more!
And on top of all that, we're a friendly bunch! we host regular society socials and even attend international Circus conventions together!
