Help us to create tomorrow’s circus TODAY. Make a founding gift as a Creation Team Donor.

Join us on this exciting journey as we create a home where talented young performers learn from top instructors and where contemporary circus artists gather, train and perform.

Your gift as a Creation Team Donor will contribute to a strong foundation for the launch of Circadium, and help to create a professional training program that will impact the growth of circus arts locally, nationally, and internationally. Together, we will transform the perception of circus arts in American culture, and demonstrate its capacity for sophisticated performances that push the boundaries of imagination, physicality, and artistry.

Before we can welcome our first students, we need to accomplish the following:

  • Obtain licensing from the PA Department of Education;
  • Secure and adapt a facility for operations;
  • Prepare the teaching team and curriculum;
  • Raise additional start-up funds and initial operating revenue
  • Promote Circadium nationally.

While much of this work is being done by volunteers, expenses associated with several key components of the work comprise a start-up budget of $173,000.

Please support Circadium today! As a Creation Team Donor, you will be part of a special group of supporters who will receive recognition as founding stakeholders in the first three-year professional school of contemporary circus arts in the United States. You will also receive special acknowledgement in Circadium communications leading up to our fall 2017 opening.
