Did you miss the show? Watch the video above!
Thank you everyone for coming out to support and join us for our free community circus show. You braved the hot sun to watch us dazzle. For many of the performers, this was their first time back on stage since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. What an inspiration! And what a joy it was to see you all there cheering with us!
We want to thank a few important organizations that helped us create "Revolve."
Chrysalis Circus is a 2021 Arts Season Grant recipient from the City of Redmond. A huge thanks to City of Redmond. We would also like to thank 4Culture. This project was supported, in part, by a grant from 4Culture. With their combined funds, we were able to provide this show for free to the public.
We'd also like to thank local business Five Stones Coffee for their support. Thank you to all the volunteers who worked on and off stage to dazzle our hearts.
If you are curious about circus arts and want to learn, many of the performers and volunteers you saw are coaches and members of SANCA (School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts) in Seattle, WA. Please check them out! They offer classes, camps, and private lessons! You can also reach out to us directly to get you connected with your local circus community.

John the Juggler has been unicycling and juggling for far too long. His plan was to only do it for as long as it was fun and interesting, and so far so good. He teaches both of these skills at SANCA, the local circus school, and regularly attends the Cascade Jugglers Club meetings. Lately he has been experimenting with two wheels which he'll happily demonstrate if asked nicely.
