"Circus arts training builds confidence, social skills and is more fun than just about anything else in the world of performing arts. That's why we're offering --and expanding-- our circus programs for the 11th year!" – Kevin Rice, Artistic Director

“My son never used to rush out of the house – to anything. Now he the car every time I take him to circus camp. It’s been a real growth thing for him.” – Circus Camp Parent

“As early as age ten, my daughter would talk about when she would be going college. Now all she talks about is joining the circus.” – Circus Camp Parent
