Great Y Circus - Once Upon a Circus
Founded in 1929, The Great All-American Youth Circus is the oldest community Circus in the world. Almost 500 performers take the stage to amaze the community every May. All ticket proceeds benefit the Great Y Circus.
The Great Y Circus is funded through performances, fund-raisers, class fees, and YMCA memberships. Unlike other youth activities, Circus is noncompetitive and focuses on individual and group skills presented in an entertaining and artistic theatrical performance, with choreography, lighting, costumes, and music. The Circus program emphasizes teamwork, dedication, trust, family skill, showmanship, excitement, and fun for both the participant and the observer. Circus teaches young people important values, such as responsibility, commitment, self-confidence, and self-discipline, along with specialized skills. The Great Y Circus is supported primarily by family, friends, and volunteers, as well as many alumni who have gone on to become professionals, who return to help the next generation learn circus skills.
