Upcoming Special Events
The Circus Arts Conservatory is kicking off the summer with exciting events!
Who says the summer is the slow season? We have lots of events and activities planned for Summer 2017 – including the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C.! Below are upcoming special events you can attend to help support The Circus Arts Conservatory:
Come and celebrate the circus arts in our community before we embark on an incredible journey to our nation’s capital! Join Sailor Circus once again in our iconic Arena for a special Send-off Performance on Tuesday, June 20 at 7:00 PM before we head out to represent Sarasota “On The Road to DC” for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival! Get an exclusive look at what the students will be presenting to an audience of over 1 million people in Washington, D.C. this summer on a “circus playground” on the National Mall during the Smithsonian Folklife Festival! This festival appearance is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these students – and they can’t wait to give you, their hometown audience, a sneak peek!
General admission tickets for the 7:00 PM performance are $10. VIP tickets are $50, which includes a pre-show event from 5:30-6:45 PM with heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer, plus 7:00 PM show admission. Click here to buy tickets online, or call the Box Office at 941-355-9335.
Step into the spotlight and get ready to shine! “So You Think You Can Circus” is a fundraising event hosted by The Circus Arts Conservatory that puts YOU in the center ring! Teams of four participants will work with a professional circus coach as they train in a circus act. Then, family, friends, colleagues and co-workers are invited to the iconic Sailor Circus Arena as the teams present their act to a live audience! There will be food, drinks, fun and, of course, newborn circus stars in this event that is truly unique to Sarasota.
The CAC is currently in the planning stages of this inaugural event and we can’t wait to share more with you soon!
