2012 Winter Circus

CircEsteem presents Winter Circus, a Celebration of Wintertide – December 15th & 16th

General admission is $15 for adults and $5 for children. CircEsteem, Chicago’s largest youth circus, is thrilled to announce CircEsteem’s 12th Annual Winter Circus – a performance by the youth of CircEsteem. The Winter Circus will evoke warm hearts on chilly nights gathered around the fireplace hot cocoa in hand, the crunch of fresh snow under boots on moonlit nights filled with twinkling snowfall, and maybe just a hint of windshield scraping. Circus performers from 3-18 years old – from beginner students through our advanced Performing Troupe – are going to knock your mittens off!

As CircEsteem celebrates its 11th year as Chicago’s largest youth circus, we’ve had the honor of working with thousands of kids from all around Chicago, in addition to many refugee youth who are new to the United States. CircEsteem’s mission has been to unite youth from diverse racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds and help them build self-esteem and mutual respect through the practice of circus arts.

CircEsteem’s Winter Circus is directed by Orlene and Carlo Gentile, CircEsteem’s Artistic Directors. Together, Orlene & Carlo have been teaching and directing circus programs for the past fifteen years.

CircEsteem’s Winter Circus promises to excite and delight audiences of all ages and is the perfect affordable outing for those seeking a fun wintertime activity for families, schools, groups and friends. Proceeds benefit CircEsteem’s free afterschool tutoring program HomeWork & CircusWork.
