The ACA began as an informal Task Force responding to the COVID-19 crisis. A collective group of founders composed of circus artists, directors, educators, and producers came together to confront the challenges brought on by the pandemic, and quickly broadened their mission to include a wide scope of issues facing the industry. This eclectic group represents a national spectrum of like-minded individuals brought together to help unify and give a national voice to the needs of the American Circus Arts.
Join us as we work to gain greater national recognition and
support for the Circus Arts within the national arts field.
