CircEsteem, Chicago’s largest youth circus, was featured at a recent Chicago Sinfonietta concert. This was the first time we ever saw this wonderful group of talented youth perform. This December 15 and 16, everyone can enjoy CircEsteem’s 12th Annual Winter Circus.
The Winter Circus will evoke chilly nights and sparkling snowfalls, while showcasing circus performers from 3-18 years old from beginner students through advanced performers troupe. CircEsteem is Chicago's largest youth circus with talents including acrobatics, trapeze, clowning, juggling and gym wheel (a.k.a the Human Hamster Wheel). Its mission is to unite youth from diverse racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds and helping them build self-esteem and mutual respect through the practice of circus arts is the guiding force behind this show.
This is a great show for children of all ages. General admission is $15 for adults and $5 for children. Purchase two adult tickets and receive a child’s ticket free. Proceeds benefit CircEsteem’s free afterschool tutoring program HomeWork & CircusWork.
