HAPPY HANUKKAH! CircusWest was on hand at the Beth Israel Congregation for their festive Hanukkah celebrations. We started off the evening teaching juggling and handheld stilts to the multitudes of young boys and girls. Then, we took centre stage and performed a 30-minute show featuring aerials, object manipulation, roue Cyr and unicycling. The energy was electric and our show was very well received. What a fun night! Dream BIG with CircusWest! ...

FLASHBACK FRIDAY - KALEIDOSCOPE (2014)

We love this production flashback photo from our 2014 Spring show 'KALEIDOSCOPE: Circus in Technicolour.' In this aerial silks number, we brought Marc Chagall's stained glass artistry to life with circus.

KALEIDOSCOPE told the story of a blue boy seeking inspiration from the world around him and looking for a place to express his TRUE COLOURS.

Our 2024 show, THE LITTLE PRINCE CIRCUS, will also see a protagonist venture to new and wonderful worlds, gaining insight and valuable life lessons along the way. Stay tuned for the poster, show details and ticket information in the coming weeks.

CircusWest allows children, teens, and adults to explore circus arts in an encouraging, non-competitive environment. To help achieve this, we seek support from our community to administer a circus bursary program, a scholarship fund, safe training spaces and to secure CircusWest’s impact in the community.

If you feel philanthropic today, please consider making a *tax-deductible donation (*of amounts over $25) to the CircusWest Performing Arts Society. Check out our funding initiatives at https://www.circuswest.com/campaigns/make-a-donation/
