CIRCUS ATLANTIC

West Wing

Circus Atlantic provides an environment of safety and expertise, where students may explore a diverse offering of classes to find their own path as artists. Circus Atlantic instructors combine time-honored training techniques with a keen sensitivity to the frequent evolutions of modern circus performance. At the heart of Circus Atlantic is a deep respect for creativity, dedication and discipline. We welcome students of all ages, backgrounds, and ability.

During the 2013-2014 academic year, we operated pilot programs in schools and gyms around greater Portland. In autumn 2014 we will be opening 6,700 square feet of newly renovated training space on Thompson’s Point in Portland, right next to where we are preparing to build the 45,000 square foot Conservatory facilities. We will offer age-specific classes designed for K-12 students, college students, adult learners, and families.
