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! Circus Harmony promotes peace through pyramids, joy through juggling and harmony through handsprings.
In addition our on-site classes for all ages at City Museum, our Flying Trapeze Center at Chesterfield Athletic Club and off-site classes in schools, clubs and community centers around St. Louis, Circus Harmony is currently running and always seeking support for these programs:
Circus Harmony Showcase and Teacher Training Program: Our core funding covers our annual show, youth circus showcases, and student teacher training.
Circus Teaches the Art of Life: Our Life Skills program for our intermediate and advanced students to learn financial literacy, injury prevention, nutrition, conflict resolution, goal setting, job/college/circus school readiness and preparation.
Wheels to Wings: A program that provides transportation and classes for deserving students whose teachers and counselors think would benefit from circus classes with us.
Peace Through Pyramids Project: Our ongoing, biannual collaboration with the Jewish/Arab Galilee Circus from Israel and our new local programs that bring together children from different backgrounds and neighborhoods!
Circus Harmony Flying Children Scholarship Fund and Reggie Moore Memorial Scholarship Fund: To provide scholarships for talented and deserving students who cannot afford classes.
Defy Gravity 101: Basic circus classes for organizations that cannot afford them.
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
