The "us" in circus

Levity Circus Collective is a community of circus artists in Ashland Oregon committed to providing a safe and inspiring space for learning circus arts.  Our experienced teachers offer a wealth of knowledge, varied perspectives and infectious enthusiasm to help students take flight.  Expert instruction is combined with open training time to complete the numerous repetitions it takes to reach an ever higher level. After learning and training comes performance, the most challenging and rewarding stage in becoming a circus artist.  Combining hard work and play anyone can find a place in or above the circus ring, we want to help you find yours.
