PSCA's Preparatory Performance Program


This program consists of up to eight hours a week of classes for hard working, motivated, not-afraid-to-sweat, 10-18 year olds of all levels. P4 contains intensive programming of up to 10 hours per week in circus, theater, and dance. P4 runs in 3-month sessions.

Circus education is growing rapidly in Philadelphia & around the country. Students are considering auditioning for circus higher-education programs and professional companies. We see, in the passions and talents of our young people, a need for more training – particularly if they hope to continue in circus as adults. They want more – more time, more skills, more community – and all we have to do is provide them the space and high-level coaching that they are asking for. We are building a network of inspiration, mentorship, and contemporary circus opportunities and we want our youngest and most enthusiastic students to be able to benefit from this as well.
