New Building & Capital Campaign Update

Skilled trades needed

Our foundation is going in! You can now see the building footprint! Construction was delayed slightly by the polar vortex, but the project is moving along. We're so excited about our subcontractors, especially Operation Fresh Start's Grad Crew, who will be supporting the interior build-out, and Endres Manufacturing, who will be installing stairs and railings. 

Watch the local news this month for an exciting press release about our capital campaign! 

Swag at the Space

We've got circus calendars with amazing photos, tank tops with sparkles, and totes, so all you jugglers can put all your balls in one sack! Check out these deals:

  • Tanks: $15
  • Totes: $10
  • Calendars: $10
  • Tank + tote OR calendar: $23
  • All three for $30!

MCS in the Community

Host Family for International German Wheel Student

Are you interested in potentially hosting an exchange student who happens to be an awesome German wheeler, or do you know someone else who might want to know more?! International Experience is looking for a host family for 15-year-old Jana from Germany, who trains wheel in her hometown and is hoping to keep training it while abroad from August 2019 to July 2020. Because there are only about half a dozen places in the U.S. that offer wheel programs and Madison has one of the largest, IE is hoping to connect Jana with a Madison-area family. Here is an FAQ page about hosting. If you are interested in possibly hosting Jana or know someone who might be interested, please contact Judy Hintz at j.hintz@international-experience.net or give her a call at 920-915-1054.

Crossback Massage at MCS

Crossback Massage, located at the entrance of the Madison Circus Space, has several big announcements! 
So far this year, $956.50 have been donated to MCS, so thank you for supporting both spaces as you take care of yourselves.

For the duration of the matching campaign, 50% of the massage price will be donated to MCS, so MCS effectively gets a massage when you do!
Parents, stop in for a quick massage while your kids are in class.
Every four referrals you bring to Crossback Massage earns you a free massage.

Self care is more selfless than ever!
Schedule your massage at www.crossbackmassage.com/schedule or email Alex directly at crossbackmassage@gmail.com
Or find Alex in the space to get a 15-minute tune-up before or after your circus classes this year.

We are proud to be supported by our community, including students, members, Diane Ballweg, local businesses, and these amazing community institutions:
