You Can Fly

Run away to the Circus without leaving Sitka!

At the intersection of creativity, strength, flexibility, and rhythm, circus arts combine the best of gymnastics and dance to enhance your physical abilities, boost your self-confidence, and expand your imagination. We perform in Sitka multiple times a year and offer classes for ages 3-100.

Founded and led by expert aerialist, choreographer, and professional dancer, Frances Donohoe, Cirque welcomes students of every age, from toddlers to retirees and everything in between. As you gain strength, balance, endurance, and flexibility, you will proceed to more advanced levels, explore new equipment, and learn new skills, all in Southeast Alaska's premier circus arts studio.
