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.

Sailor Circus consists of circus performances, minus animals, performed by students ages 6-18. Their talents are remarkable to see. A small venue, not a bad seat in the house.

If you are in Sarasota when these children are performing you are in for a treat. It's the country's oldest youth circus. Local children start as young as 7 and work their way up through the ranks to become master aerialists, high-wire walkers, masters at silks (think Cirque de Soleil), jugglers, acrobats and much, much more. It's a cheap way... More

Sailor has a wonderful program I which not only teaches skills but instills confidence in every child who enters. It was wondering instructors who build the foundation for every child to feel like they are a part of one team. They not only instill the importance of unity but they also teach the children to reach out to the community.... More

This circus is amazing and so professional, we had a great evening. First circus we have been to for many years as I don't like to see animals used in circuses, I don't think it is natural for animals to be dressed up doing tricks, however there was hardly any of this type of act and the animals used seemed...
