WE'VE MOVED! Our new location is 2050 Hancock Street, San Diego 92110. Details & Map

San Diego Circus Center is devoted to advancing circus training on the west coast and enriching the lives of our community by teaching circus disciplines, art and culture.


We offer contemporary and traditional circus training and performance opportunities for our youth and adults in a safe, noncompetitive, socially enriching and nurturing environment. With our curriculum we encourage and build on each individual’s strengths and abilities to create a strong, unique foundation for excellence.


We train hard and perform regularly throughout the year.
