Circ-A-Thon – Saturday, December 14, 2019

You are invited!

The Challenge Begins!

Circ-A-Thon is My Nose Turns Red’s annual friend and fundraising event. Each student picks a circus skill, sets a goal and challenges themselves to master it by Circ-A-Thon. Just like a walk-a-thon, they seek pledges. On December 14, they demonstrate their persistence, hard work, and determination in front of the Circ-A-Thon audience.

In addition to the circus skillshare, there will be unicycle and gym wheel class demonstrations. Plus, Steve Roenker, co-founded and program director has challenged all the jugglers to a food challenge.

This family-friendly event includes tasty treats, baskets of goodies to raffle, and a silent auction to round out this fun family experience. Admission by donation.

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!
