So, you wanna be a Clown?
If you’ve made it this far, we’re guessing there’s something inside you looking to give clowning a try. You’re in luck because we LOVE helping people discover the clown within.
Many people are surprised to find out how fun, rewarding, and fulfilling clowning can be as a hobby and even career. It’s also a great way to build confidence in yourself and get outside of your comfort zone.
If you like to have fun and have a heart for serving and bringing others joy, YOU have the heart of a clown. So why not give it a try? At a minimum, we’ll make sure you have fun and leave with stories to tell.
How Do I Get Started?
We offer a few ways for you to get started:
Option 1 – Test The Clowning Waters
Are you curious about clowning but not quite sure if it’s for you?
We know exactly how you feel because many of us started the same way.
So come visit an alley meeting or two. Most of our meetings are open to visitors who contact us in advance, and we’d love to have you! You’ll be able to meet some real clowns, learn some clowning tricks and skills, and ask lots of questions. We’ll even help you try on a clown face if you’d like.
Just let us know you’d like to visit in the form below, and we’ll get back to you with a good time you can visit.
Option 2 – Mentoring Through Our Alley
Our alley offers ongoing mentoring for aspiring and curious clowns who become members of the alley. We’ll work with you to help discover and develop your clown’s personality and character, learn basic clown performing skills, and create your clown’s unique look through makeup and costuming. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn a variety of skills clowns employ such as balloon twisting, face-painting, puppetry, and silly magic. Basically, we’ll help you learn everything you need to know to come clown with the alley and experience how rewarding clowning can be for yourself.
Additional learning opportunities are also available at our monthly meetings where we all continue to develop our skills.
Option 3 – Intro to Clowning Workshop
Our Intro to Clowning Workshop is a 1 day workshop that will take you hands-on with some clowning basics. You’ll learn about character development, friendly makeup designs and application, how to act and perform like a clown, and a basic clowning skill such as balloon twisting or silly magic.
