Local circus professionals and hobbyists balance inside German wheels, juggle clubs and could soon be twirling and shifting in the air from silks hanging from the ceiling.

The Madison Circus Space is open after years of conversation within the Madison circus community about the need for a facility that brings together each individual club of athletes .

“It was always a dream to go practice and rehearse and to be able to be around other people who are doing similar things,” said Josh Casey, a member of the MCS board of directors and a professional juggler.

The creative, communal space, located at 2100 Winnebago St., will serve as a place for current circus performers and clubs to practice and gather, as well as a means for professionals to teach classes and for local residents to explore the circus arts.

MCS will offer its first glimpse into that world at an open house Saturday.

At the open house, the public will be able to see what classes and clubs are available, watch circus arts demonstrations and even take a stab at German wheeling, hooping and juggling.

“We want this to be a community center for circus arts, with affordable prices and places for clubs and individuals to meet and practice,” said Luke Emery, president of the board of directors and an amateur juggler.

The space, formerly an old car dealership, was found by Emery and Carly Schuna, board of directors secretary and a German wheel instructor.
