What is a “Hup (clap) HEY!” anyway?
A “Hup” in circus terms is a call that signals other performers to get ready. It may be shorthand for “heads up”, as in here comes a juggling ball, person, or a big group ending to a routine. It definitely is a call to the present moment. When you follow the “Hup” with a clap and then everyone shouts, “HEY!” (usually with their arms stretched out high in the air) you get a traditional ending, or “style” to an act (followed by roaring applause from the audience). We also use the “Hup (clap) HEY!” as a means to close all of our classes, workshops, camps and performances. We have found that it represents all the joy, community, teamwork, accomplishment, and fun that we want our company to share with the world. So we took it as our name. Go ahead and give it a try!
