Circus West

Circus West School of Circus Arts has been teaching trapeze, unicycle, juggling, wire walking and other circus skills since 1985.

Jay Nunns was one of the first Cirkids more than 20 years ago. He’s now Artistic Director of the group. “Its our passion … we love circus, we love putting on shows… and we love teaching circus arts to people.”

When one of the students’ grandparents donated $25,000 to the Cirkids program, Vancouver Foundation matched that amount with a grant from the BC Arts Renaissance Fund. The result is a $50,000 endowment that will keep the troupe tumbling for years to come.
