About Green Troupe
Green Troupe focuses on building a strong and broad foundation in the FGC core circus skills. Troupers also work on developing stage presence, and create a full show, which is performed throughout the season at local venues.

*Most of FGC’s bookings occur on weekends, and we expect that most show opportunities will occur on Saturdays. Troupers who are enrolled in the Saturday option will perform by default in Saturday gigs (e.g. Pumpkin Festival, Children and the Arts, etc.). Troupers electing the Tuesday/Friday option will have excellent training time in lieu of performance opportunities. Troupers wanting to perform on some Saturdays, but not all, should enroll in any option that includes Saturdays and inform us of any conflicting dates as they arise.
