CircEsteem Winter Circus Next Weekend At Alternatives

CircEsteem, Chicago’s largest youth circus, is thrilled to announce CircEsteem’s 12th Annual Winter Circus - a performance by the youth of CircEsteem, taking place December 15th & 16th, 2012, at Alternatives Inc., 4730 Sheridan. Showtimes are at 11a.m. and 1p.m. on December 15th and 1p.m. and 4p.m. on December 16th.

The Winter Circus will evoke chilly nights and sparkling snowfalls, while showcasing circus performers from 3-18 years old from beginner students through our advanced performing troupe. General admission is $15 for adults and $5 for children. Purchase two adult tickets and receive a child’s ticket free.

As CircEsteem celebrates its 12th year as Chicago’s largest youth circus, we’ve had the honor of working with thousands of kids from all around Chicago, in addition to many refugee youth who are new to the United States. CircEsteem’s mission of uniting youth from diverse racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds and helping them build self-esteem and mutual respect through the practice of circus arts is the guiding force behind this show.

CircEsteem’s Winter Circus is directed by Orlene and Carlo Gentile, CircEsteem’s Artistic Directors. Together, Orlene & Carlo have been teaching and directing circus programs for the past fifteen years.

CircEsteem’s Winter Circus promises to excite and delight audiences of all ages and is the perfect affordable outing for those seeking a fun wintertime activity for families, schools, groups and friends. Proceeds benefit CircEsteem’s free afterschool tutoring program HomeWork & CircusWork.
