MISSION: To engage and educate students using innovative learning programs; to measurably improve the quality of life for individuals in care communities; and advance the legacy of the circus arts.

Cause: Arts & Culture, Youth

The Circus Arts Conservatory (CAC) uses the extraordinary power of the circus arts to educate, enrich and entertain while furthering the legacy of Circus.

Since its founding, the CAC has attracted international circus artists to its annual Circus Sarasota performances. It has risen to be recognized as the American leader of youth circus arts training through the Sailor Circus Academy, the nation’s longest-running youth circus, housed in a state-of-the-art training arena. Additionally, The CAC is home to the first Circus Arts Magnet Program for middle and high schools and has a history of teaching science in the classroom using a unique arts integrated curriculum.

The CAC also performs impactful, quality of life outreach services to seniors living in care communities through its Circus Arts in Healthcare Program.
