Here & Now

Don’t let yesterday’s ‘blizzard’ stop you from hitting the town for a brrravo-inducing circus show! And yes, I write all of my own material 🙂

Tonight (11/16) at TSNY-DC’s Intermediate Flying Workshop Student Showcase at 8 p.m., you’ll see amazing tricks by dedicated students on flying trapeze and aerial apparatuses. Visit this link and choose ‘Sign Up for a Class,’ then choose ‘IFW Show,’ click continue and scroll to the bottom to click ‘Show Attendee,’ after which you can enter your payment information. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. at 1299 New Jersey Ave. SE.

Unfortunately, tonight’s (11/16) performance of ‘Gilded Lily presents: Limelight Cabaret’ at the Black Cat has been canceled. Be sure to follow Gilded Lily on their Facebook page to keep tabs on the next show.

If you still need your burlesque fix, visit the ArtFarm in Annapolis tomorrow (11/17) for Les Folies Derriere presents: Peep Show Pop-up! This 21+ ‘after hours bazaar’ includes artisan vendors and fun performances to brighten up your weekend. Visit the Facebook event page to RSVP and learn more.

December is looking rich with circus events. Highlights include a parade devoted to St. Nick’s evil counterpart, Cirque du Soleil (on ice), German wheel workshops and a juggling festival in Richmond. Scroll down to see the full calendar.

Juggling meet-ups in the coming week include:

  • The University of Maryland Jugglers will meet today (11/16) from 4-6 p.m. in the downstairs atrium of the Art/Sociology building. They will probably not meet next week because of Thanksgiving.
  • Juggling class at TSNY-DC is on for this Sunday (11/18) at 1:30 p.m., and you can also take advantage of their open gym juggling on Fridays from 6-7 p.m. Register for either at this link.

Join the DC Jugglers Facebook group for the latest updates on club meetings.
