join the CIRCUS

Children and teens aged 6+ are invited to Trenton Circus Squad workshops free of charge.  Learn circus skills such as stilt walking, trapeze, juggling, acrobatics and slapstick from Squad members and staff. Practice working with others by helping your peers.  Sign up once so we know who you are, then show up for any workshop. Groups of 10+ should schedule visits by e-mail.

We hold workshops after school most days in the school year and on Fridays during the summer. Check our calendar for dates and times.

12+? Join the Squad

If you are aged 12-18 and are willing to commit to attending regular sessions, working with others and giving back to your community through circus, you can become a Squad member.  Sign up below.

Experienced Squad Members who commit to learning a challenging set of circus- and team-related skills have the chance to join our ambassador group - Road Squad. Learn about Road Squad requirements here. Sign up as a Squad Member for the chance to demonstrate your skills.

There is no charge for Trenton Circus Squad workshops

We do not charge, so that all youth have equal access to our program, regardless of their ability to pay.

Please join us in supporting TCS at the level that seems right to you. The incremental cost of each child to participate in the squad is about $600 per session. Donating more will help support the underlying costs of the program and making the experience available without regard to ability to pay. All donations are tax deductible and any amount will be appreciated!
