Say goodbye to the average work-study program! At The Muse Brooklyn, our hearts beat circus and our workstudy students are the backbone of our community. From being the face of our front desk, to transforming our studio into whatever fun event we happen to be hosting, this program promises to utilize the skills and interests of every individual, while giving opportunities to build and refine professional circus skills in our state-of-the-art studio in Brooklyn.

Our work-study program is a six-month commitment, consisting of two, 4.5 hour shifts each week. Duties while on shift include basic studio maintenance, greeting and signing in our guests, and setting up/striking classes.  All work-studies will have the opportunity to complete detailed complimentary training for the position, with workshops that include rigging and studio safety, hands on tutorials for using our client front desk check in program, CPR/First aid and more!

In exchange for hours worked on site, work-studies receive unlimited open workout training time and ground circus classes, options to "drop in" to any open aerial class using class credits, discounts on events and merchandise, free entry into professionally focused community workshops and more! This program is flexible enough to meet the needs of students, performers, dreamers with a day job, and anyone else with other commitments, while still being structured enough to give hands-on, professional experience in administration, performing arts, and the circus industry overall. Our work-study Program is designed to encourage the creative side of each individual while allowing them to explore new heights (literally!)

In addition, we have working professionals regularly training in our studio as well as host auditions for large scale productions, with casting agents passing through on a regular basis. The Muse Brooklyn is an incubator for those that are willing and eager to make themselves available for opportunities and experiences unique to our space. Even if your career goal is not to perform professionally, you will be given the opportunity to learn other skills such as lights & sound, event and stage management, and production. Personally, you will grow and develop simply by being a regular part of our family and community.  

No circus experience required! We're proud to have been a home to everyone from dancers to actors, scientists to engineers, and everything in between. If you love and support the arts, The Muse community is for you!

Apply by June 15, 2019 in order to be considered.

The program's acceptance will run from Sunday, July 7th, 2019 - Sunday, January 26th, 2020
