Green Fools Circus School develops, creates, teaches, and promotes the arts of mask, puppetry, circus, clown, and physical theatre. For now more than 30 years, the organization creates socially empowering work with our theatre creations, we offer workshops to schools and community organizations, and we provide free Social Circus outreach programs for challenged, indigenous, new immigrant, and refugee youth. Two years ago, we opened our first full-time circus and aerial studio in Calgary. Some students that you will see today have been with us since the beginning of that new adventure. Our students will be Kailtyn Horrocks on hoop, Allegra Brunt on hoop, and Elly Sweet on Trapeze.

Sapphire Circus Arts is presenting four unique individual performances by adult students, coaches, and one awesome 12 year old. Music and choreography was selected by the performers and they were assisted by a Sapphire coach: Samara Von Rad or Jorden Patten. Erin Vandermolen-Pater singing live on aerial hoop (lyra), Caroline Cheng on silks, Sarah Tonnos on Trapeze and Samara Von Rad & Erin Dewar on mini hoops (lyra). We can’t wait to fly with you!
