Circus classes, camps, performances, parties, and more for kids and adults in Ithaca, NY!
We're talking aerial fabric, trapeze, juggling, tight wire, acrobatics, hooping, props, and more!
Circus has a rich and diverse global history. From jugglers in ancient Egypt, to the invention of the trapeze in France, to the rigorous acrobatics traditions rooted in China, circus is inherently a global community.
Join ringmaster Travis Knapp and a troupe of 30 circus artists ranging in age from 8 - 50 as they celebrate the diversity of circus disciplines and the way they harmoniously link together and honor one another. These links serve as a metaphor for how togetherness, collaboration, and communication can lead to a more peaceful planet.
Think globally, circus locally, respect universally!

Summer Circus Camp 2017!
Spend the summer flying, climbing, and creating at Circus Culture. Each morning we begin with open practice followed by game, warm up, and group stretch before launching into a day of circus learning. We set aside time for lunch, snacks, invention, and circus inspiration each day. Read more about our camps here or click here to register.
