The Circus Up Community Troupe, founded in 2020, is a team of youth circus artists who perform bold and uplifting shows in the greater Boston area. In the tradition of "social circus", the Troupe practices and performs together for the purpose of celebrating what it looks like to courageously learn, play, and create together. Troupe members (ages 8-18) are always learning new skills through Circus Up classes and demonstrate what’s possible when we work hard, stay curious about each other’s differences, and leverage each other’s unique strengths. The Troupe works hard to increase access to circus arts and address social issues while crafting collaborative circus acts that surprise, baffle, and delight. You can find them performing for local organizations and at a wide variety of community events.
