VIDEO REQUIREMENTS


 
Please note our acceptance process for spring/fall has changed slightly! Instead of applying for a specific track, you will indicate which skills you are comfortable with and show us videos of those skills and then we will assign folks to tracks accordingly. Please use spotters or variations if necessary and do not attempt anything you are not comfortable with. Our primary goal is to understand where you are in your current practice. The most important thing is that you train safely, with proper technique and a positive attitude, the rest we can learn together.  
 
Alternatively, if you have a performance or training video that adequately expresses your skills, you may submit that in lieu of a formal video submission. We may however ask for additional videos. FOR SUMMER STUDENTS: please send us three videos (training videos, instagram reels are fine) that accurately represent your level of standing acro. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us at info@pitchcatchcircus.com.
