Iluminar’s Youth Performance Companies


Cirque Stars Company (ages 5-12 years)

Iluminar Aerial’s Cirque Stars performance company will be debuting this summer! The Cirque Stars company will be an excitement-filled company geared towards kids 5-12 years of age.  The company will meet for 3 hours a week, learning aerial and dance technique, as well as ground and partner-based acrobatics.  The students will work together over a 3 month session to build a show that will be performed at Iluminar Aerial’s studio under the stage lights.  The program is great for both kids that are brand new to aerial but have a drive to perform, as well as students that have already started classes and are ready for the next step. This 3 hour a week performance company is perfect for those busy families as well!
