GREEN LIGHT CIRCUS 2020 REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

Updates about Summer Circus & Registration

While we will maintain our original posted registration dates, we have moved the process to ON-LINE ONLY in order to make it accessible during this heightened period of caution around COVID-19’s transmission and circulation. Please pay with the highlighted link “On-line only” and email registration form to Director@denaliartscouncil.org or mail to DAC PO Box 404 Talkeetna AK, 99676.

In the current environment it is important for us all to consider our personal health and safety, as well as that of our community, in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 (the coronavirus). Denali Arts Council leadership and staff are continually monitoring the rapidly changing developments around COVID-19 in the United States and abroad in consideration of how we can limit its impact, and the impact of other contagious illnesses, on our artistic community. With preventive measures being taken nationwide to contain the transmission of COVID-19 through social distancing, We feel confident in moving ahead with our summer schedule of classes, workshops, events and programs which commence May 31st.

We value circus because it is a hybrid of art and sport, and is comprised of a myriad of disciplines, from juggling to trapeze, acrobatics to balancing props. As a result, it not only includes people of varied skills and abilities, but it actually requires this diversity to be whole. When practicing circus arts, trust, coordination and communication skills are developed, and risk taking curiosities are played out in a safe and controlled environment. The non-competitive yet physical nature of the form makes it a unique and beneficial outlet for all ages. Our students are constantly learning new skills and improving on the ones they know, minute-by-minute and on a daily basis.

If you have any further information please feel free to contact our staff via email Director@denaliartscouncil.org

Après Ski Party CANCELED March 14th

Dear community members, art patrons and Oosik racers- Denali Arts Council has made the very difficult decision to cancel all events Saturday to help mitigate the spread of Covid -19. We will most certainly reschedule both these fabulous bands in the near future but the priority is to protect our communities well being. If already purchased a ticket we will be refunding accordingly. Thank you for understanding.
Attention ⚠️ Tonight’s film hosted by @denalinordicski is still scheduled as normal. 7:30 pm showtime.
