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 is a spectacular venue for children (and adults) of all ages. What a wonderful circus experience without using (abusing) animals. This is pure people talent!!!

Our 2 grandchildren ages 2 and 4 had a blast! This event was recommended to us in a restaurant but other grandparents.

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.

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!
