"The Greatest Little Show On Earth" celebrates its 65th anniversary this week with nine performances displaying Sailor Circus' ongoing commitment to excellence in high-flying, family-friendly entertainment. The more than 100 students featured in Sailor Circus, from 8 to 18 years of age and representing Sarasota and Manatee counties, are trained and coached by the many professional circus performers whose families have called the Sarasota area home for decades.

“The public will be treated to a masterful, exceptionally entertaining circus,” says Pedro Reis, CEO of The Circus Arts Conservatory, the non-profit organization that oversees the Sailor Circus. “Our students are not just learning circus arts, they are also learning discipline ... Their reward? Applause from the thousands of local residents and visitors who fill each performance to capacity every year.”
