CircusWest is Vancouver’s circus performing arts society – a comprehensive circus arts centre for all ages. Located in the historic Garden Auditorium on the PNE grounds in east Vancouver, CircusWest offers children, teens, and adults an opportunity to explore Circus Arts in an encouraging, non-competitive environment. CircusWest’s programs encourage respect for oneself and others and provide an environment to learn responsible risk-taking. As a collaborative community in which everyone can develop skills, find their artistic voice, and realize their potential, CircusWest is a creative space where individuals can dream big, push limits, and defy gravity – all while having fun.

Programs include: CirKids (ages 3 to 19); Camps (spring break and summer); CATS Circus Arts Training Sessions (drop-in practice); Adult & Teen (classes for ages 13 and up); birthday parties (kids, teens, and adults); and workshops (for groups, companies, team-building).

Not sure what class may be for you? CircusWest is offering an Intro to Circus Fun Night on September 10th from 8:00pm to 9:30pm, where you can try your hand at a variety of circus skills and equipment on this safe and fun filled night. Please note, that some of the more popular classes may fill up by this date, so sign up in advance if you know which class you want to take.

CircusWest’s classes make for perfect training to help build and maintain core strength, balance and flexibility while providing a unique way of artistic expression. There are classes offered for all ages in a supportive, non-competitive environment let by highly experienced coaches.
