About Us

“The Vancouver Circus School aims to promote physical literacy through the circus arts. Circus skills are considered unparalleled in terms of variability, transferability, and fun, making them a great tool to develop long-term physical literacy.

our vision

At the Vancouver Circus School, we are a family-run educational institution with a core mission to offer education and performance opportunities in the circus arts. We believe that everyone, regardless of their background, should have access to our programs, which are designed to foster long-term development, physical literacy, and healthy practices.

Our aim is to inspire people of all ages to adopt a wellness-focused approach to life that enables them to maintain their fitness levels and enjoy daily activities, while also extending their years of independent living. We also seek to encourage aspiring circus artists to pursue their dreams by offering a range of programs and career options.

our programs

We offer a diverse range of programs that cater to various needs, ranging from recreational classes to year-long artist development programs, group visits, birthday parties, off-site workshops, festivals, and event bookings.

Our classes cover a variety of areas, including aerials (such as Aerial Silks, Aerial Hoop & Static Trapeze), acrobatics (such as Tumbling, Trampoline, and Teeterboard), and props (such as Juggling and Hoop Dance).

We firmly believe that circus has a host of positive benefits, and we are excited to introduce you to our team at the Vancouver Circus School.
