Costume and Training Workshop

Any style or beauty mavens in the group? Then this costume and training workshop is a must-do portion of the Epic Experience. This two-hour workshop is an immersive activity where you can either get the inside scoop on each artist’s makeup routine (let us know what cleanser they use to keep their skin looking flawless!) or team up with an artist to put your own creative skills to the test to learn one of the unique Cirque art forms.
