Circus Arts Conservatory
The Circus Arts Conservatory is a non-profit organization whose mission is to keep the Circus Arts Alive and Thriving. The CAC’s innovative programs enhance the incredible value and impact of the Circus Arts to both young and old in our community and beyond. Through world class performances, excellence in youth training and educational outreach, The CAC inspires a passion for the performing arts while offering quality opportunities to learn life skills as well as entertain appreciative audiences.
Year round visitors to The CAC have the opportunity to learn aerial silks, the flying trapeze and other circus disciplines in a youth sampler class. Professional and student circus performances are presented seasonally in the European style one ring Circus Sarasota Big Top, the one-of-a-kind Sailor Circus Arena and at The Historic Asolo Theater on the grounds of the Ringling.
