“amazing children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 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.

“Wonderful circus for the whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Excellent circus, all the performers are school kids through
grade 12. Lots of retired circus performers in the Sarasota area so the kids are well trained. You won't believe how good the show is.

“Children Performers at their best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

These are very talented young men and women who must train extensively to be as adept as they are at performing difficult circus arts. This is a charity event and well worth attending.
