“like a dance recital, only more fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

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.

“This is a "don't miss" experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Pablo and Dolly have invested not only their resources but their hearts and passion for the circus arts into this program. They pass on the art and legacy that was passed to them. Teaching youngsters to balance, "fly", and perform in front of an audience is not for the faint of heart and these two do it masterfully. The staff is passionate about the work they do and the culture they pass on. You may even catch of glimpse of the Walendas as they stop by to support the students and cheer them on! I great deal at less than $10/person!

“amazing children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

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.
