You hear about kids getting into trouble often but these 4th through 12th graders are practicing everyday for their circus performance and when you see the finished product you will be impressed and amazed at what these kids can do. Definitely worth seeing the performances.

“The greatest little show on earth!”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

Since we have been involved since the 1970's (my brother-in-laws were in the show), our daughter in the late 1980's, and my husband still rigs (28th year), we love Sailor Circus. Having seen first-hand how dedicated the coaches and students are, and how hard they have to train (we used to live at the tent), it is a show not to be missed.
