TOP PICKS: CircEsteem Shows THIS Sat & Sun

We've been an active part of CircEsteem for two years and can vouch for how excellent their staff, classes and shows are.   Check out their Winter Circus for two shows Saturday and two different line ups Sunday.   I've got one kid out sick with a fever & nasty cold so he's going to miss his snow angel/lyra act, but Sagezilla will be there rockin' out with the Chinese Pole II class for both Saturday shows.   We've been promoting this one on FB and Twitter for ages, but today's the day!

CircEsteem's Winter Circus promises to excite and delight audiences of all ages and is the perfect affordable outing for those seeking a fun wintertime activity for the family. This year we have two shows to pick from with different acts each day. Come to one or both days! Over 100 youth will perform from the Saturday Circus program, the School Outreach program, the HomeWork & CircusWork program and our advanced performing troupe. 

Proceeds benefit CircEsteem's mission of uniting youth from diverse backgrounds and building self-esteem through the practice and performance of circus arts. Purchase your tickets now. Buy two adult tickets and get one kid ticket free!
Looking forward to seeing you at the circus,
