School Residency Programs

After-school residency.  In one week, we produce a high quality circus, starring 25 of your students. Tuition paid for by parents so this program is ZERO COST to your PTO/PTA. You raise $1000-$3000 by selling tickets, refreshments, and circus goods. We supply everything: costumes, music, props, the works! Students are introduced to a variety of circus arts, including: juggling, diabolos, devil sticks, plate spinning, tight wire, globe balancing, and “specials”. The final show is a rip-roaring event, and your students learn valuable life lessons. Includes free in-school assembly program.  For grades 3-8

In-school residency.  Entire school participates. Workshops all day, plus all-school assembly. Culminates in all-school performance.  For grades K-8


After-School Program can raise $1000-$3000 for your school!
You actually profit by bringing us to your school. The parents of each participant pay a tuition fee, which covers our fee, so the cost to your organization is zero. You make money in four optional ways:

  • You can charge more per student;
  • You can sell tickets to the show;
  • You can sell refreshments;
  • You can sell circus goods. (We provide the goods, and give you a sales commission)

    The final performance…
    A gala show for the school and parents! An exciting memory and accomplishment for students. Every student chooses their own act, and is given the chance to shine!
