Plunge into the depths of the underwater world with SANCAs Professional Preparatory Program students as their one small submarine embarks on a circus exploration of the deep. Join the intrepid captain and crew as they encounter acrobatic fishy creatures, buoyant aerialists, danger, fear, joy and a little floundering along the way.
Guaranteed to leave you drenched with laughter and a water-logged heart. Submerged will feature acrobatics, contortion, aerial fabric, rope, and hoop, as well as dance, juggling, and partner acrobatics. Take a deep breath and dive dive dive!
Each year our Professional Preparatory Program students create a full length circus show as a capstone project for their nine-month intensive.
The Professional Preparatory Program is a first step towards a career in circus with a specific focus to prepare graduates for further study at a multi-year circus institution for higher education. The curriculum is structured as a rigorous generalist program designed to provide strong foundations in five main areas of focus: Floor Acrobatics, Aerial Acrobatics, Dance, Theater, and Act Creation. The 9-month academic year is divided into five sessions, during which students will first learn a baseline of skills, learn to create acts in specialties of their choice, and, in the final session, participate in the creation and performance of this group show.
