Youth Performing Arts Circus

Circus training is a non-traditional athletic activity which provides an alternative to organized sports. At Circus Juventas, no child is ever disappointed by not "making the team" or not being allowed to perform. Every child is given the opportunity to grow and be challenged. Combining athleticism with the arts, the purpose of Circus Juventas is to:

  • Offer an environment in which boys and girls work and train side-by-side as equals, learning together the values of discipline and hard work;
  • Foster mentoring relationships between older and younger children, between peers, and between adults in the community and children of all ages;
  • Train all children as a team, from superior athletes to those less gifted;
  • Teach students the value of contributing to society through performances at community and charitable events.

"Where Cirque du Soleil meets the Children's Theatre Company, you'll find Circus Juventas."

"For the past 15 years, the St. Paul-based school and performance company has been showcasing its students in performances in the kind of recital that leaves you at the edge of your seat with your jaw sagging open. I admit to being a latecomer to this particular company, a mistake I would encourage you not to make."
