About us

TCS is a non-profit organization offering FREE workshops and after-school programs for kids and teens ages 6-18.

Participants practice physical skills that improve health and well-being, learn life skills that help them achieve, and build trust with others.

Trenton Circus Squad taps into the wonder and tradition of circus to build on the extraordinary potential for youth to transform themselves and people around them when they have confidence in their own value.

Our programs

Spring programming begins in April 2023! FREE to all participants in Trenton and beyond.

Workshops (ages 6-11) are held Mon-Wed, and facilitated by TCS coaches and Squad members. Parents are welcome to stay! Register for workshops here.

TCS After School / Squad (ages 12-18) is held Mon-Fri, where participants learn circus arts skills, safety, community engagement, and create performance pieces. Register for after-school here.

TCS goes to great lengths, or should I say death-defying heights, to empower kids to think big about what’s possible within their own lives.
