Circus Center


We are a vibrant hub of the circus community on the West Coast. Throughout the year, Circus Center produces professional-quality shows starring our students, instructors, and community members. Our pre-professional youth troupe has sent students on to careers in circuses around the world, with a scholarship program that helps young artists to pursue their professional dreams regardless of ability to pay.

In addition, we offer artist residencies to support the development of new creative circus works; a long-running, beloved summer camp program; corporate, youth, and group events, workshops, specialty multi-week intensives, and so much more.

Our world-renowned team of instructors and coaches have performed with the Nanjing Acrobatic Troupe, Moscow Circus, Cirque du Soleil, Pickle Family Circus, Circus Bella, Circus Smirkus, Teatro ZinZanni, Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, and the Big Apple Circus. Many of our teachers have over a decade of teaching and performing experience, and a few of them got their start in Circus Center’s youth training programs.

Whether you’re here for fun, fitness, or a circus career, people of all ages and experience are welcome to discover the magic of circus at Circus Center.
