April 3 – 6, 2013: The PAL Sailor Circus!  Exciting entertainment for the entire family under the Big Top… 

Sailor Circus has been around since 1949.  It began as a small gymnastics class at Sarasota High School.  Now under the direction of sailor circusposterPAL, the Big Top boasts a spectacular 4 ring circus.  It’s known as the Greatest "Little" Show on Earth.  Geared toward the youth in our area, trainers focus on teaching skills, while developing character.  After school, students from 4th through 12th grade enjoy the opportunity to experience the performing arts, in a circus atmosphere.  Dedicated students practice 20 to 30 hours per week, with volunteer coaches, who are retired circus performers, sailor circus alumni and circus enthusiasts.  Over 200 competent volunteers show their strong community involvement, donating over 25,000 hours of their time to the Circus.  They have achieved a huge goal by turning out confident and capable young individuals.  Come out to the Big Top and bring your family to what’s sure to be a thrilling show!

Sailor Circus Box Office (941) 366-0156 – 2075 Bahai Vista Street.
