Orphan Circus is a troupe of exceptionally dedicated and passionate 10-17 year-old aerial circus artists from the Denver area. We attend a variety of area circus schools, and found each other as we sought out additional performance opportunities.
Our first gig together was a sold-out $150/plate fundraiser for 500 people in Boulder, CO. We had so much fun together during three very intense weeks of rehearsal, that we decided to continue performing together. Within a month, we had 20 performances scheduled through Summer 2012! Another 15 summer engagements followed shortly thereafter.
What sets us apart is that we choreograph all of our performances, set them to music of our choice, and design all costumes and makeup ourselves. Our parents run the business side and provide lots of transportation and food!
