About Us

Something For Everyone!

Sapphire Circus Arts mission is to provide an inclusive circus community where people feel inspired to express themselves both creatively and athletically. To represent Alberta as a standout training facility well known for both a creative and safe atmosphere. 

You have options, why choose us? Our aerial circus classes will strengthen your mind and body, but it’s not just a fitness class. Aerial circus is a beautiful art form. Performance exercises are important to build endurance as well as to grow as aerial students. Stringing skills together and making unique transitions will challenge and reward you as a student.

We love watching our students soar!
