Who we are

At CirquesExperience,

we are dedicated to promoting the disciplined practice of circus arts, fostering unity among individuals from diverse backgrounds, and providing comprehensive circus skills training. Our commitment extends to offering competitive classes for Gym Wheels, unique after-school programs, and creating avenues for performance, education, and economical job opportunities.

Our Approach

Taking Fun Seriously!

Situated in Chicago, CirquesExperience has been a hub for individuals of all ages, ranging from 5 to 99, to engage in various programs and activities. Since our establishment in 2011, we have become a home for Gym Wheel and Cyr Wheel enthusiasts, practitioners of Aerial Silks Arts and Dance, Static Trapeze, Trampoline, Partner Acrobatics, Juggling, and more.

Over time, we have expanded our offerings to include Summer Camps, Winter and Spring Break Camps, and Day Camps catering to 5 to 13-year-olds during school breaks. Our Competitive Classes for Gym Wheels, coupled with four progressive levels of courses, aim to help students excel in the captivating blend of sport and art within wheel gymnastics. Additionally, we actively contribute to the community by providing Physical Education lessons to local schools.

Community Engagement: Beyond the Circus Tent

Beyond our circus tent, we actively participate in parades such as the Thanksgiving Parade, Parade of Lights, Halloween Parade, 4th of July Parade, and the Cherry Blossom Parade 2023 celebrations. Our year-round performances at events like Loyola Summer Plaza,

Christkindl Market and Virginia Tattoo showcase the diverse talents nurtured within our community. Collaborating with the Park District Summer Program, we conduct workshops, field trips, and regular Circus Arts classes at Chase Park and Willye B. White Park.

In 2020, we introduced Gym Wheel and HomeWorks', a distinctive

after-school program blending enjoyable and healthy physical activities on the

Gym Wheel. Led by highly skilled coaches and supported by capable tutors,

this program caters to children and teenagers aged 5 to 13.

Community Outreach: Scholarship Programs and Support Services

Committed to inclusivity, we collaborate with the USA Wheel Gymnastics Federation's scholarship program, running a dedicated initiative to support refugee children (ages 5 to 13) and their families. In addition to financial aid, we provide in-person family support services through education, creative practices, and circus arts performances. Our goal is to unite youth from diverse backgrounds, fostering self-esteem, leadership, and mutual respect.

At CirquesExperience, we believe in the transformative power of circus arts to bring joy, skill development, and unity to our community.
