Build new skills and friendships! Workshops are facilitated by coaches and Squad members. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch their children discover the magic of social circus (no photo / video allowed).

We partner with several after-school programs from different areas that bring their children to workshops. This is a unique opportunity for children to interact and forge connections with a diverse group of participants.


  • Ages 6-11

  • Meets Mon-Wed 4:30-5:30 pm
  • Registration required

After-School / Squad

Participants in our after-school program are dubbed Squad members. They learn circus techniques, life skills, and build trust with teens from other neighborhoods. Squad members also lead community engagement through workshops and performances with younger children and families.

It’s an often-breathtaking experience filled with exercise, learning, and joyful laughter. Not only do Squad members build circus skills, but they also have dinner, chores, and homework help. Our program produces well-rounded youth who go on to college, other circus schools, and other careers propelled by the skills they’ve gained from our program.

  • Ages 12-18

  • Meets Mon-Fri 4:00-6:30 pm

  • Homework help available from 3:00 pm
  • Transportation available in the Trenton area

  • Communal dinner with the Squad included

  • Sessions end with at least two public performances

  • Registration required

Other than circus, I’ve learned how to trust myself and how to be confident in who I am.
