Social Circus and Outreach

One of our founding principles is to be a Compassionate Company, and we execute this through two of our programs, CirqueCompassion and CirqueKindness.


CirqueLouis instructors and staff participate in CirqueCompassion because they understand that circus arts are more than the art of juggling, balancing, etc– they can fundamentally change your life! We have a focus working with youth in Portland, but our programming will soon be growing– follow us to learn more!

Applications for our social circus program are available here:

"Thanks so much for allowing my boys the opportunity to be in the social circus program with CirqueLouis. It has been a wonderful experience for both of them! They have both enjoyed practicing and learning new skills with you all. I feel like they've grown so much from circus. Their confidence has grown and they love the friends they've made there. look forward to having them continue to participate and can't wait to see the next production!"

"...both of my daughters have received instruction and improved their skill levels on silks, trapeze, acro, ball walking, floor work, and tumbling. Our family is extremely grateful to the CirqueLouis Social Circus program."

"We also want to say that Lee is just so positive and encouraging of the social circus participants."
