The more you donate, the more circus we bring to kids!

Our Mission

Circus Up uses circus arts to overcome social barriers and build community with people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. To us this means that all of our events, classes, and workshops should be made as accessible as possible. Our sliding scale reflects this, by having those who can pay more cover costs for those who can only pay less. By paying at a higher level, you are helping ensure that this work empowers an economically diverse community of people.
