Inside The Costume Closet

On October 4, 2014 join SRQ Media and performance partners the Circus Arts Conservatory, the Sarasota Cuban Ballet, and Fuzión Dance Artists for our signature black tie gala, Bal Masqué. In collaborations for the big night, Kelly Christiansen, SRQ’s Marketing and Account Development Director was given a one-of-a-kind behind the scenes tour of the Circus Arts Conservatory’s costume closet.

At 65 years old, Circus Sarasota Academy is America’s oldest youth circus with more than 1 million spectators throughout its history attending annual youth productions. Sailor Circus Academy is an after-school training program for students aged 8-18 who develop life management skills, gain self-discipline and bolster confidence and a commitment to achievement, all in a circus atmosphere.

Other performance companies such as the Ringling Bros. Circus, Disney, and the Ice Capades donate the collection of costumes each year.

On her visit, Kelly was in awe of the magnitude of this costume closet and said, “This is the biggest dress up closet I have ever seen (and that’s saying a lot – my sister and I used to play dress up in our grandma’s closet – the notoriously-fashionable, former board member of Designing Women, Valerie Terris!) Intrinsic to the room full of marvelous headpieces, boas, shoes, suits, and gowns is this sense of magic and play. As one of the performance partners for SRQ Bal Masqué, the enchanting essence of the Circus Arts Conservatory performers will thrill and inspire us – one of the many facets of October 4th to which we are looking forward.”
