This Week in the Circus District

‘Thriller’ is definitely on the playlist for the Circus District: Juggle Jam tonight (10/20) at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (545 7th St. SE) from 6-7:30 p.m. You can bring your spookiest juggling tricks to the dance studio for a night of demonstration, learning and collaborative performing! This workshop caters to beginners, but more experienced jugglers are most welcome to join in the festivities and throw the audience for a loop.

This is the FINAL WEEKEND to catch the Maryland Renaissance Festival in action in Crownsville, Md., with variety acts performing, axe throwing and mead drinking galore on Saturday (10/21) and Sunday (10/22).

The downtown DC location of Pole Pressure will play host to Pole-usical 2017, a performance incorporating pole/aerial acrobatics into the music and storyline of Rent the musical, tonight (10/20) and tomorrow (10/21)  Tickets are available for all three show times at this link.
