For over 25 years, CircusWest has been offering children an opportunity to explore Circus Arts in an
encouraging, non-competitive environment. CircusWest allows Vancouver area students to develop life
skills, encourage respect for oneself and others and to learn responsible risk-taking. We welcome
children in to a safe collegial atmosphere where their co-learners are team mates and friends. We allow
students to work to their own level and to direct their learning experience with gentle, respectful
