Circus Fun Run

Our community loves to run. What better way to bring circus to the community than through The Circus Fun Run. At this family-friendly event, runners and walkers will follow the 5k course around the beautiful Great Oaks Careers campus. Afterward, we invite the community to learn circus skills through exciting interactive demonstrations, including juggling, hooping, plate balancing and more, led by MNTR students and staff. Just as a runner has to build their endurance to reach greater distances or speeds, our students must build endurance to reach their skills goals.

Enjoy demonstrations by My Nose Turns Red Youth Circus students throughout the race and afterward. Cross the finish line and get your very own red nose and kazoo.

The Circus Fun Run will be held Saturday, September 21, 2019, at the Great Oaks Career Campus, 110 Great Oaks Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45241.

2019 Spring/Summer Circus Camps

2019 Spring/Summer Circus Camps

MY NOSE TURNS RED’s summer circus camps are highly engaging and challenge youth to balance, manipulate objects and build human pyramids – all the activities needed to build hand-eye coordination. Circus campers play a wide variety of games that build teamwork, cooperation, trust, and friendship.

Circus camps for 4-7-year-olds are half-day, run concurrently with all-day camps for older youth, and have their own coaches who provide fun activities and circus equipment just right for their size. Campers learn stilt walking, (low) tightwire walking, hooping, rolling globe, rola bola, and circus games.
Circus camps for 7-16-year-olds also include gym wheel, juggling, pyramids, diabolo (Chinese yo-yo), physical comedy, and games.

Two-Week Summer Circus Camps

Two-week camps include aerials, unicycle, and partner acrobatics. Students may sign up for the first week of the two-week beginning/intermediate camps. All camps end with a performance.

The intermediate and advanced camp features special guest coach Sam Sake from Chicago. Skills include unicycle, wheel, manipulation, aerials, and balance. If you are not a member of the intermediate/advanced ensemble class or have not attended the intermediate/advanced camp in the past, please contact Steve Roenker.

2019 Youth Circus Extravaganza – From the Ring to the Moon and Beyond

From the Ring to the Moon and Beyond

Thank you for a wonderful show this weekend. We want to thank all of our circus students, the parents, the volunteers and our board of directors. We also want to thank our donors, funders, and sponsors.

The photographs are now available to purchase on SmugMug.

The Youth Circus Extravaganza is My Nose Turns Red’s annual celebration of the accomplishments of our amazing circus students. Over 50+ circus students from across the region came together to demonstrate their courage and tenacity, joy and creativity in the Jarson-Kaplan Theater in the Aronoff Center for the Arts.

This year’s theme celebrated humankind’s desire to fly from the Wright Brothers to Apollo 11 and beyond. The youth circus performers and coaches were amazing with their circus skills on the unicycle, German Wheel, and aerial silks. Other skills include juggling, hooping, stilt-walking, wire-walking were excellent. And, of course, the clowns delighted all ages.

A big thanks to all involved!
