Circus Harmony teaches the art of life through circus education. We work to build character and expand community for youth of all ages, cultures, abilities and backgrounds. Through teaching and performing of circus arts, we help people defy gravity, soar with confidence, and leap over social barriers, all at the same time.

Our programs teach valuable life skills like perseverance, focus, and teamwork. Learning circus with others teaches trust, responsibility and cooperation. Perhaps the most important experience we give our participants is the opportunity to meet and interact with children from different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds than their own. We believe the path to peace is a path of cooperation and communication. Teaching children from different neighborhoods how to stand on each other's shoulders may seem like a strange way to take this path. But it's the technique we use!
The power of circus extends beyond our all-ages onsite classes, to 11 different offsite locations in schools, clubs and community centers all over the Greater St. Louis area, as well as our Flying Trapeze Center at Chesterfield Athletic Club.
Circus is about accomplishing the impossible. Your gifts support our youth throughout the St. Louis area to find joy through juggling, peace through pyramids, harmony through handsprings, and to defy gravity among other limitations.
"The teachers are the best."
Best thing is, "learning so many things everyday, and meeting new people."
"They [summer camps] gave me the chance to prove myself."
"Please don't make me leave, I love it here."
"thank you :) "
"Watched all your talented kids at the Folklife this summer. We spoke briefly but mostly I watched you use circus arts as a vehicle to pour love into the lives you touched. I saw some great teaching there. Gave me hope for life." -David from the Calliope on the National Mall in Washington, DC, December 2017
"Amazing! We were in town for the weekend and saw a show at City Museum. We signed up for a drop in class that evening and it was the greatest time of our trip. The instructor was great! I can't say enough about him. If you live in STL you should take advantage of this resource. Wonderful opportunities for children and expert, experienced instructors. Definitely worth your time and money." -Kimberly, March 2017
I wasn't expecting too much when my son started his first class. I just thought it would be something fun for him to try. This was new to us. Before finishing his first semester, I noticed how much this class was doing for him. Not only was he learning new things, but his self confidence improved as well! He loves his class! Thanks for not only teaching him new circus skills, but also some life skills! - Jennifer, January 2017
