  • The Mission of Circus Center is to inspire passion for circus arts through training, performance, and community outreach.

  • When in the Bay Area, our artists and educators at Circus of Smiles spread comedy and clowning through after school programs and by bringing circus to large scale events. A percentage of each student’s tuition goes directly towards supporting our outreach efforts. When abroad, our team offers international classes and performances at no cost to those who need smiles the most.

  • Paper Doll Militia’s innovative approach to choreography and poignant use of theatricality have gained the company the reputation of being pioneers in original aerial theatre.  Their pieces seamlessly weave dynamic physicality, aerial arts, and visual theatre.  They emphasize the mixture of modern and vintage mediums as well as invented aerial apparatus to create their signature aesthetic; dreamy, whimsical, and dark.

  • The University of California at San Diego Aerial Silks Program gives UCSD students the opportunity to try out aerial silks. This is a purely recreational program.

They have appeared in numerous films and commercials and in television shows and print campaigns.
