There are several ways to get involved with Gamma Phi Circus. You can join as a student performer, you can volunteer and help with the home shows or you can donate and financially support Gamma Phi Circus. All are welcome!
Membership in Gamma Phi is open to all full-time Illinois State University students, faculty, and staff regardless of major field of study, department affiliation, or gymnastics background.
Many of our members come to Gamma Phi with no background in circus or gymnastics. Gymnastics, cheerleading, or dance experience helps, but it is not required. What we look for are hardworking athletic people who are coachable. We start off each year by giving perspective members the opportunity to try the different acts we have to offer and then skill build as we approach auditions in mid-to-late October.
To begin your journey in Gamma Phi you should attend one or more Circus Open Houses early in the Fall Semester. Check back for Circus Open House dates for Fall 2020 in early August!
