Circo Globo

A program of The City of Albuquerque Department of Arts and Culture


Each summer, students (ages 8-12) train with national and international circus professionals from basic to advanced circus arts in a bilingual, physically intensive and artistically rigorous curriculum. Curriculum includes juggling, stilt-walking, clowning, aerials, acro-balance, music, and dance, in addition to the exploration of compassion, collaboration, tenacity, inclusion, leadership, environmental stewardship and more! The program culminates in free Circus Share Day performances for families and community members.
