Do not submit Facebook or Instagram links. The video should include 30-60 seconds of strength and flexibility demonstrations. Your choice – feel free to include push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, backbends, leg lifts, or anything else that illustrates your current level of strength and flexibility. Then, a maximum of 2 minutes of performance. Performance can be in circus skills, or other types of performing arts. Please note: while we are excited to work with specialists in non-circus disciplines, if you have never trained in circus arts before, we recommend that you begin with a recreational program like the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts (
