Circus School Under a New Big Top

Big plans are in the works for Circus School campus

Circadium and Philadelphia School of Circus Arts held a ground breaking ceremony for the new Philadelphia School of Circus Arts “circus campus” at the former home of St. Madeleine Sophie Church. Guests experienced the first public walk through of the sanctuary space and learned about the plans for this coming fall.  The grand opening festivities in the works for the first weekend in September include a circus parade, a weekend celebration, a ribbon cutting ceremony and other surprises.
