The Circus School of Atlanta!
We are entering into our second year of successful operations.
The First year has seen an AMAZING growth and community engagement. We have had over 250 students come through our doors. Profession circus artists from Cirque and Ringling brothers came to train. Hosted 15 birthday parties for kids, motivational talks, side show performance’s, weddings, and 1 memorial service. Beyond this, we have hosted free community events and community betterment meetings, launched an incubator program for start up circus arts groups and produced 2 shows!
That is too little however, in 2019, we seek to do more!
We want to do more, much more! We want to expand a kids program, we want to produce more circus productions on our stage, we want to host more community events for free, and become a beacon of amazing artistry in the South East!
The funds we are looking to raise would cover our baseline operational costs for 2019. With these costs covered we can focus more on creating and producing works of art, expanding programs, and have more bandwidth to donate time to other causes that need a groovy place to host their events!
Where are the funds going?
Here are the need levels, listed from most important down.
- $46,380.00 : Rent for 1 year.
- $5,886.23 : Insurance for 1 year.

If we can cover all or part of this with your help, you will see 2019 be a banner year for creativity and Circus in Atlanta!
