Very entertaining show put on by kids ages 8-18. Some amazing acrobatics of all kinds; on roller skates, on bikes, in the air, on ropes, on silks, etc... Plenty of clowns and all the usual circus attractions you'd expect, but performed by kids. The tumblers (using a see-saw) and the trapeze finale were my favorite. Simply amazing what these young...

The show was amazing as always. The 3rd show we've attended over the years and it always amazes us! The hard work and dedication of the performers (children 4th grade- 18 years of age), trainers, and many volunteers shows! It is professional, and affordable, for ALL ages!! We're so proud to have this as a part of Sarasota culture, our... More

Hands down one of the best acts I've seen in a long time, and it was done by children and young adults! I took my 7 year old and now he wants to move to Florida and join the circus. Practice has really paid off for them and it was a pleasure to see the trust and friendship between these... More

This entirely STUDENT performed circus features the very best of what the Big Top should be - non-stop entertainment. The talent of the kids is astounding. Ranging from 8-18 years old, there are tiers of ability and you can see some of the training going on. I was also pleased to see that there was some inclusiveness of challenged children... More

I had tickets for this show that someone had given us and my husband and I went to see it. We knew young people would be performing, so we didn't know what to expect. We were amazed!! The ages are from 4th grade to 12th grade. Everyone was so talented and they even juggled with torches of fire! The costumes... More

Had the opportunity to see the children's circus perform the week after Christmas while visiting. Great acts and talented kids, The whole family enjoyed the show. It gets warm under the tent, so dress accordingly.

Children from 5 to 18 who live in/near Sarasota are truly fortunate to have Sailor Circus in their community. Performances are greatly entertaining. I wish my grandchildren in Connecticut had such a resource available to them. Kudos to staff, volunteers, and of course the kids for delivering a delightful evening of entertainment. Downside: Seating is extremely cramped.

I recently attended an appreciation dinner for a group of volunteers. The event was held @ the Sailor Circus facility. The circus members were the main entertainment. I left so inspired by these young people who for fun or more serious aspirations are training in the circus arts. A very worthy stop for young and old.

Sailor Circus is awesome. It is more than just a circus, but a growing opportunity for kids of grade school and high school age. The performances are really terrific. It is great to support such a worthwhile venture.
