Planning an event at which you might like some circus entertainment? Our circus show could be just what you need!
Our interactive circus show is great, participatory fun for kids. Members of the audience are involved in many of the circus acts—plate spinning, feather balancing, ribbon twirling, ring tossing, stilt-walking, … Amidst these acts the ringmaster mixes in several circus acts of his own. Often we will conduct a circus workshop following the show to teach the kids circus skills they can perform.
Our interactive circus play area is great for fairs, festivals, open houses—events with a lot of people and a number of activities going on. We set up a circus activity station where your guests can try their hand at a number of different circus elements—for instance, ribbon twirling, flower stick manipulation, shaker cups, ring juggling, diabolo,… We teach them different tricks with the equipment. It provides a fun, interactive, hands-on experience for your guests!
Sometimes we will also present a circus show or two interspersed among the teaching to compliment the circus play area.
Looking for circus acts for your event? We can provide over a dozen different circus performers ranging from stilt walkers and jugglers to balloon artists, face painters, and caricature artists. See our circus performers page for a fuller list and photos.
Planning a circus birthday party? Lots of fun is in store! Have it at our party place St. Louis in Webster Groves with inflatables and circus, or we can bring the circus to you. Circus show, workshop, goodie bags, animal balloons and more!
Our Circus School St. Louis teaches circus to kids in and around the St. Louis area. Learning circus skills helps students:
- Build presentation skills and confidence
- Develop fine motor skills, and hand-eye coordination
- Get physical activity
- Learn new skills
- Have fun!
We offer a variety of circus school St. Louis programs:
Looking for a fun week-long experience for your child? We offer our circus camps at schools and community centers throughout the St. Louis area throughout the summer and sometimes during winter or spring break as well. Kids learn new skills on a variety of circus equipment, as well as clown skits and gags, balloon twisting, and more! Camp culminates with students putting on a circus for their families. Check out our summer camp schedule, between February and August.
Contact us to see if we offer circus after school classes at your school. If not, let’s get a program there started! Our after school circus classes are typically 6-8 weeks, 1 day per week for an hour. Like circus camp, circus class culminates with students starring in a family circus the last day.
Our circus workshop provides a great introduction to circus skills. Kids learn tricks with several different circus elements. For very large groups we sometimes split them into smaller groups and rotate each through the circus workshop, so we can provide more individual attention. For added fun, your circus workshop can also be preceded by a comedy circus show!
Our circus artist in residence program has 3 parts: 1) We begin by putting on a circus show for the kids. 2) We teach the kids circus skills on a variety of pieces of circus equipment. 3) The kids put on a circus for each other. It can be videotaped and played back later. Kids love seeing themselves on TV!
Our Circus Day Program is a half day or full day version of the circus artist in residence. It is great for overnight camps, or situations where you want circus, but just for a day. We teach each group of kids a different act to perform in the circus show.
Your child can continue developing circus skills at home after circus school is over with circus equipment for sale in our online store.
