Welcome to the Hup Squad blog. We are a group of circus teens who learn, perform, watch, and think about circus. We eat, breathe, and dream circus. We are members of the American Youth Organization and we want to get other circus kids like us connected and involved in the growing national and international circus community. We love circus!
We are from the East Coast and the West Coast, we just started doing circus or have been training since we were small. We do handbalancing, fabric, lyra, juggling, contortion, acrobatics, or everything we can. We do circus at a circus school, with a local organization, or on our own.
This blog is where we will share with you our thoughts and experiences about circus and AYCO. We will post interviews with circus professionals, reviews of shows, history articles, thoughts about training and performing and buying circus gear. If there’s something you’d like to see here, don’t hesitate to let us know!
