Three Glasgow organisations are hoping to recruit performers aged between 15 and 25-years-old to join a youth circus training programme.
 They will perform to audiences across Scotland during the Queen's Baton Relay in advance of the Commonwealth Games.
 And they could form part of a permanent circus troupe which will be based in the city but tour widely.
 The Commonwealth Youth Circus will be dedicated to high octane and spectacular contemporary performance.
 Young people selected to take part will be expected to train full-time for nine months from October this year until June next year.
 Each person will follow an individually tailored development plan for 20 hours a week, create material with a professional creative team and take masterclasses with international guest tutors.
 The Commonwealth Youth Circus is a partnership between Glasgow companies Bright Night International, Glasgow Parkour Coaching and Aerial Edge which are at the forefront of physical training and performance in Scotland.
 Producer Phyllis Martin said the idea of creating a Glasgow-based circus was the result of the companies meeting talented individuals.
