Online Classes

Circus at Home

SANCA is excited to continue to offer online classes. Starting Thursday, August 6, we are adopting the same approach as our in-person classes. We will cancel online classes that have not met the 3-student minimum. If classes don’t have enough students enrolled 48 hours before the class, we will cancel the class and email anyone who needs to be notified.

Classes are available for a small fee with the option to make an additional contribution.

We have also adjusted our scholarship and relief pricing options for online classes. Starting Thursday, August 6th, the “covidrelief50” code covers 50% of the cost of a class (instead of 100%). If your family relied on the 100% discount for youth classes, we invite you to apply for a scholarship here.

This program is supported, in part, by a grant from the Washington State Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
