WHAT IS CIRCUS UP?
We’re a Boston-based nonprofit that provides school, after-school, and community circus programs for youth. Our students grow as individuals and support each other through learning skills like juggling, aerials, partner acrobatics, stilt walking, and more. We frequently partner with Commonwealth Circus Center in Jamaica Plain, but work with a variety of community organizations. Circus Up uses circus arts to overcome social barriers and build community with people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Circus Up is like an instruction to a new direction. It is a better way to express myself, face my fears, and tell my story. The circus training is like something that takes me towards the same destination, but with a different direction.”
- Latoya, teen student
