Circus Round-up

Circus round-up this year falls on February 26, for those who do not know, it is the day where everyone who is interested in being a circus performer can come to the circus building and apply.

In order to apply, you must be under the age of 22 and live in Miami County. Once you are there, you have to fill out some paperwork, and if you are 17 or younger, you will need a guardian. Once you’ve taken care of all your paperwork, you can pick acts. You will also find a paper that states the acts and a paper for what acts practice on what days and times. You will see the trainers and they will have signs that state their acts.

There are trainers for all the acts (acts are not the same every year) and some trainers train multiple acts. Each trainer has their own schedule and thus they fall on different days, usually the act has two practices a week, but the trainer could make it more or less.

Senior Jazlyn Korving said, “I think it’s a great way to meet your trainers and get more information on the acts that you could try out. I really enjoy Round-up because I get to see people I haven’t seen in a while and sign up for new acts to experience something new. Overall roundup is pretty fun and gets you excited for circus to start back up”. In the end, in the traditional Circus ending, May all your days be Circus days.
