Registration for Fall Circus Classes is Open!

My Nose Turns Red offers your child the opportunity to run away and join the circus without leaving home. Learn how to juggle, balance on the rolling globe and learn the basics of creating a clown character. Classes are highly engaging; challenging youth to walk on the wire, balance on the rola bola and build human pyramids, which builds their physical literacy and hand-eye coordination. Students play a wide variety of circus games that build teamwork and cooperation, trust and friendship. Boost your children’s self-confidence and creativity in a safe and non-competitive environment. My Nose Turns Red classes are led by highly experienced, professional circus coaches and experienced assistant coaches. Gym wheel coaches are certified by Internationaler Rhönradturn-Verband.

You can access the schedule here. The 12-week session begins September 7 – December 7, 2019. Online registration is here.

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 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!
