Overview

Our mission is to expand human potential through the vital forms of circus arts by providing artistic and educational programs that push the limits of physical, emotional, and creative expression.

Founded in 1995, we have grown to become one of the nation’s premiere circus and performing arts training centers. Dedicated to bringing a new physicality to the American Theatre, through developing physical performers and encouraging ground-breaking theatrical exploration.

We promote our core values of creativity, community, and courage across three program areas: classes, shows, and event entertainment. 

Dance Classes

While we do not offer specific classes in dance, we do offer Aerial Arts, tumbling and gymnastics classes for early childhood, youth, and adults. Our Fall Youth Circus and Spring Youth Circus Ensembles, Jr. Ensemble and Teen Ensemble all incorporate a form of dance: contemporary, jazz and modern. Our Professional Training Program in physical theatre and circus arts offers dance classes in the following: burlesque, jazz, musical theatre, modern and contemporary.
