Most children and many adults are enthralled by the circus. Some have even dreamed of running away to join a travelling show from time to time. In Las Vegas, the circus comes to life with exciting productions, visits from major circuses, the perennial carnival that is Circus Circus and even circus workshops and the chance to learn to master the trapeze. Only in Vegas can you run away with the circus while still staying at home.

Circus Workshops give individuals the chance to learn through fun. Since the circus is one of the most endearing and popular forms of entertainment, the necessary skills can be used to teach atheletic and life lessons for individuals and groups in the home, the school or at work. Workshops vary from a couple of hours to all day and include your choice of skills such as juggling, clowning, gymnastics or acrobatics. Each circus experience is uniquely tailored to your specifications, making these entertainers perfect for children, teens, parties and special events, or corporate events and conferences. Sandou Productions will increase self-esteem while developing focus, trust, coordination, team building, respect, communication and concentration. Workshop members will work to face their fears and challenges and “think ‘outside the box’ within a safe, controlled environment.” If you prefer, the workshop will come to your event for an on-site Circus Workshop. It’s all up to you.
