Big Top Academy: School’s Out Edition, sees the young circus artists of Big Top Academy staying connected during summer break via their online school newspaper. They’ll compete for the coveted job of Big Top Bulletin editor by showing off their incredible circus skills and solving epic mysteries along the way. The series will premiere on TVOKids and POP TV this fall.

We are looking for children ages 9 to 11 years old and asking all interested participants to submit a short video of themselves (no more than a minute) doing their own safe circus tricks at home, the gym, or even neighbourhood parks.

Mime, dance, make animal balloons, or even juggle! The idea is everyone can do circus everywhere!
