The art of circus is universal – illuminating unique histories and perspectives through skill and movement. What if one wasn’t able to express their story and were excluded because they were different: whether because of the country they come from, the way they pray, or the neighborhood they call home? No one would ever know their voice. Inclusion is their story, your story, our story – a circus without walls.
San Diego Circus Center
is devoted to advancing circus training in North America and enriching the lives of our community by teaching circus disciplines, art and culture. They offer recreational training, professional circus training, and performance opportunities for our youth and adults in a safe, noncompetitive, socially enriching and nurturing environment. Their curriculum encourages and builds on each individual’s strengths and abilities to create a strong, unique foundation for excellence. With professionally-aimed classes and programs, their focus is on higher education accompanied by a strong advocate of recreational studies. Founded by Jean-Luc Martin, San Diego Circus Center brings thought-provoking performances from the perspective of the world of Circus! Martin has performed with several established circus companies, including three tours with Cirque du Soleil. This year the San Diego Circus Center was selected in Cirque du Soleil’s “Next Generation” program where CDS provides coaching, choreographers, curricula and ongoing support to assist in building high caliber artists.
