While circus schools and public schools are closed across the USA to prevent the spread of COVID-19, here are some resources for keeping circus youth active and having fun!

Live Online Classes

Check our our list of circus organizations holding online classes!

Whether you’ve always wanted to take a circus class or you’re a circus student who can’t be at your usual circus space in person, you can take a circus class from the comfort of home and support a circus school, studio, or organization impacted by COVID-19! Stay fit, learn new skills, and maintain community.
