San Francisco's longest-running circus school, Circus Center offers a custom-built, one-of-a kind circus adventure for you. With four different types of activities in which to base your event, and many incredible add-on activities, Circus Center offers something for everyone in your group, from the boldest to the most timid. Our expert instructors work with all guests in groups and as individuals to ensure that all participants are safe, feel supported and have a great time. Our event coordinator works with you to make sure your event is fun, memorable, and seamless.
Our parties begin with a half hour of warm-ups, led by your very own Ring Master. Warm up activities include games, team building exercises and light calisthenics and stretching to warm the body and get everyone in the mood. The remaining time is what we refer to as “circus activity time”, in which your guests will delve into the circus activity you choose! After a full day of Circus, parties will close with a group activity to bring everyone together and cool down, and a group photo to remember your experience at Circus Center!
Events can be held at Circus Center’s historic facility, or at a location of your choice. All parties held at Circus Center’s campus include use of the bleacher seating area overlooking the Main Gym for the duration of their party and the 30 minutes following their event to use as a party room in which to serve food and refreshments. Reservations can be extended according to the needs of your party.
