Owner description: The Sailor Circus in Sarasota, Florida is known worldwide as "The Greatest 'Little' Show on Earth." Sailor Circus Academy is one of the top circus schools in the USA. More than a hundred students from Sailor Circus Academy perform for the public in full-length circus shows. You'll see circus acts on the high wire, hand balancing, flying trapeze, juggling, clowning and much more. Great family entertainment! Circus classes and lessons are available year-round for children and adults who want to get into the act!

This performers in this circus are local children and young adults and you will be astounded at the level of the performances. You will see everything from jugglers to trapeze artists. A great family outing!

If you want to feel good about the youth of America go to one of these shows. I am not a big fan of the circus, but this group of kids from about 8 -18 are just FANTASTIC! The dedication the kids and the adults give to the show will bring tears of pride to your eyes. Nothing but the best.

Sarasota's youth circus has been a part of the community for decades. Recently merged with the not for profit Circus Sarasota, the organization now has the benefits of professional circus artists as coaches and mentors. There are performances at various times during the year. Any of them will amaze you with the dedication and professionalism of the young acrobats and aerialists. The spring show, however, is your best opportunity to see the circus at its best. The performing venue, a permanent tent on the Sarasota High School campus, incorporates a live band, professional lighting and sound and the full array of circus skills including flying trapeze and high wire. A must see while in Sarasota.
