Jamie and Opal grab some air in the Girl Circus SCIENCE show 2015. Incredible athleticism, creativity and original choreography from these long time Girl Circus performers. Our loyal followers who have watched them develop their skills over the years were blown away by their act this year!  Girl power go!

Girl Circus summer camp at the Wildish, made possible in part by the Springfield Arts Commission. Girl Circus training builds strength, flexibility, and trust. This adds up to body confidence and positive body image for girls of all ages. Shows and performances like this one create opportunities for skill building, community connections and teamwork.  The Wildish Theater is a beautiful space and was the perfect venue for a camp in Springfield.

Girl Circus SCIENCE was a huge success out at the Oregon Country Fair this year! Our show was seen by at LEAST 24000 people, one of the biggest crowds ever. We'd like to give so much thanks to all the people who helped us make it happen! A big thank you to Michelle and Ben, the vaudeville coordinators and the Oregon Country Fair, our gracious hosts and family. We'd like to thank all of the girls for their professional performance and fun spirit, and thanks to all the parents and volunteers who helped us with many aspects of the show. Of course a huge thanks to Dave Bender and the Girl Circus Orchestra, and another huge thanks to all the adult performers for their incredible work at Circus Camp and on the stage. Lastly, of course, a big thanks to YOU: all of you parents, friends, and new Girl Circus Family who came out and saw us and made this show one of our most successful ever! 
We have received a generous grant from the Lane Arts Council to bring Girl Circus SCIENCE to Lane County. Stay tuned for dates and deets!
Thirty-one youth and teen performers are getting ready for our training Camp on June 22nd at the WOW Hall in Eugene. Our contortionists, tumblers, acrobats, hooper, and poi spinners all prepare for our Science-themed 2015 show! First performance will be July 10, 5:30 PM, at W.C. Fields stage at the Oregon Country Fair.
While you're waiting with bated breath for camp to be here, why not follow us on Twitter @Girl_Circus or Instagram @GirlCircus for a constant stream of Girl Circus photos, updates and fun? 
Girl Circus's July 20-24 Portland camp has changed location! We are supremely fortunate to be working with the Circus Project for this camp, and will be availing ourselves of their brand-new facility and many circus resources! The Circus Project is Portland's center for the contemporary circus arts, so we are very excited to be working with them and using their space, after the untimely and unfortunate closure of the Lotus Seed. 
The Circus Project is located at 1920 NW 17th, Portland, OR, 97209. Free parking is available.
If you have any comments, questions, or concerns about this location change, please feel free to contact Girl Circus Director Darcy DuRuz: 
on the phone at 541-484-4824 
or by email at

We'd like to extend our thanks to the Springfield Arts Commission and the Larson Family Foundation for their generosity and support of the arts. Girl Circus just received a generous grant from each of these organizations, and it's partly through the support of foundation grants that we've been able to do so many new and exciting things, from putting on more camps to performing in Portland at the Umbrella Festival. A huge thank you from Girl Circus to these two organizations for their support of women in the arts and here's to more grants in the future! 

Playing with a new design tool!  If your daughter wants to attend camp this summer in PDX, with the Girl Scouts, in Eugene/Springfield or Lopez Island it is indeed time to sign up.  The June 23-27 camp is already FULL.

Wow! Thanks to Girl Circus Alumna and friend of the show Karen Quest, we've uncovered a whole bunch of fabulous photos from our 2009 show Plaid! Cast your mind back to the Year of the Ox and spend a happy Thursday afternoon perusing the archives with the cast of Plaid.
