This is a spectacular venue for children (and adults) of all ages. What a wonderful circus experience without using (abusing) animals. This is pure people talent!!!

Twice a year the kids from the circus school put on a show, and it's loads of fun. Not expensive, it's a great outing with kids. The older students do a fantastic job on the trapeze and high wire.

I was amazed at the childrens circus! The kids perform the same acts as you would see in an adult circus. I could not believe the difficulty and flawless performances of the children. A must see if you are in Sarasota during their performance times offered twice a year.

Excellent circus, all the performers are school kids through grade 12. Lots of retired circus performers in the Sarasota area so the kids are well trained. You won't believe how good the show is.

These are very talented young men and women who must train extensively to be as adept as they are at performing difficult circus arts. This is a charity event and well worth attending.
