CircEsteem's Final 3 Spring Circus Shows This Weekend (original show photos)


ChiIL Live Shows' shots of CircEsteem's opening night, Friday 5/11/12

This is the BIG one.   CircEsteem might be missing a big top, but this circus show is BIG on Fun.   

Check out 150+ local Chi-Town kids strutting their skills in this Chicago themed extravaganza.    Highly recommended for "children of all ages".  These talented
kids from 6-18 years old are learning juggling, 

Chinese Pole, Spanish Web, tight wire, 

aerial arts
like trapeze-silks-lyra (the suspended hoop), 


unicycle, globe, hoops




gym wheel,
skipping rope,


clowning and so much more.   


See ChiIL Mama's own Du-Jay and Sagezilla.  They've been rockin' the circus arts for two years now, and have been accepted onto the pre-team.

ChiIL Mama will have loads of Spring Circus HD video clips from the show for you in the near future.   For now, here are our show stills from last weekend's Friday night performance, including sneak peek rehearsal pixs and a variety of colorful acts.  Saturday night's show stills are coming soon and we'll be back this weekend to roll on the whole show Saturday morning and Sunday as well.

CircEsteem kids have traveled internationally to do exchanges with other circus kids in Africa and Germany.   And here in Chicago they forge life long, multicultural friendships with kids from all over the city, with different economic backgrounds.    CircEsteem offers basic circus classes on a sliding scale fee, so they are accessible to everyone, and they run fun after school classes at a number of  schools. 


We love that the older kids mentor the younger ones and are paid to teach as camp counselors and teachers.    CircEsteem also offers a matching fund scholarship to encourage teens to save for college and continue their education.

The final 3 shows are Saturday, 5-19 at 1pm and 5pm and Sunday 5/20 at 2pm only.   Highly recommended.   Catch 'em while you can.   CircEsteem's spring circus is a giant, once a year compilation of thrilling skills.

Congrats again to our 4 ticket winner, Nicole F.   She'll be checking out the final show on Sunday at 2:00pm!
