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.

Open by audition (contact Jon) to teens in grades 5-10 who have previous circus experience, or experience in an equivalent movement activity (dance, gymnastics, martial arts, etc.)


FGC Green Troupe Director and Head Coach, Jonathon Roitman, runs training and rehearsals, in collaboration with other coaches. Extra practice sessions may be called if needed to prepare a performance. Troupers are expected to practice on their own or with friends during the week. ​

*We assume that most Green Troupers will participate in the Saturday performances. However, if your trouper will not be participating in any or all of the shows, please inform the Green Troupe Director, Ted, at the first practice.
