The Amazing Circus 1-ders

The Circus 1-ders sprang from a Circus I class, general circus for ages 5-6, taught by Terri Sullivan. Chosen for their innate talent, the Amazing Circus 1-ders  really live up to their name. 

The troupe was formed in March of 2008.  All of the performers, age  5-8, are students at SANCA and have trained many hours to hone their skills and learn how  to be young performers.  They perform in all circus disciplines, including tumbling, acrobatics and tight wire as well as the aerial arts such as trapeze, vertical rope and silks.  Favorite performances include The Moisture Festival, all SANCA shows, The Kirkland Summer Concert Series and The Wallingford Kiddie’s Parade. 

Future goals include more shows, learning new feats of daring that make their parents nervous, and new sparkly costumes.  As the Circus 1-ders are getting older they are moving to a new performance class called The Magnificent 7 as new 1-ders claim their place in 1-derland.

The Magnificent 7

Formed in 2010, the Magnificent 7 were originally seven enthusiastic students between the ages of 8-12-ish. New members have joined the company and often they perform as the "Magnificent 7: give or take 1 or 2.” 

This extremely talented and high energy troupe works together to create acts in a variety of circus arts: tightwire, rolling globe, trapeze, aerial fabric, juggling, rope jumping, mini-tramp and contortion. As with any ensemble, each member brings his or her own artistry, but as a whole they are seriously committed to comedy. 

Perhaps you’ve seen the Magnificent 7 performing in Seattle’s Moisture Festival, SANCA’s Annual Spring Showcase (SASS), SANCAthon, SANCA—Up, with a Twist!, Artopia,or the Kirkland Summer Concert series.
