QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
PRE-RECORDED performances, not a Live event.
Due to the face that we are international is it impossible to get all performers on the same time zone.
Does the piece have to be Circus Themed?
It does not have to be CIRCUS themed, it can be any theme you'd like. The idea of this competition and showcase is for each performance number to be THEMED we encourage FULL makeup costumes, background decor and props.
DO I NEED PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE?
You don't need any precious experience. The Pole Circus is a place for all to explore their artistic vision of pole or aerial arts. Lyra, hoop, silks, pole, flying pole. All welcome, themes, doubles. This competition is about going above and beyond to tell a story.
What are the categories and levels?
We have a showcase division for people who do not wish to be judges and simply would like a platform to display their art. The showcase is separate from the competition.
