ABOUT US

Founded in September of 2010, Circus Warehouse is a collaborative effort to produce the next generation of elite circus performers, to integrate circus arts into mixed-media forms, and to provide a space for the development of new and experimental works. Arts champion/empresario/educator and Warehouse Director, Suzi Winson, runs the professional program which turns out top-level performers for traditional and contemporary circuses, and for dance and theatre productions that incorporate circus arts skills. Professional training is the primary focus, but the Warehouse also trains nonpro circus enthusiasts and serious athletic practitioners. The culture that the Warehouse has cultivated attracts seasoned pros from all over the world who come to train and teach. The Warehouse is also the residence of Dzul Dance, a company that fuses modern, ballet and tribal dancing with aerial arts, and as well, an associated fine art space, Art and Circuses Gallery.
 

RUNNING A CIRCUS SCHOOL OUT OF A WAREHOUSE

In the 7 years since its inception, Circus Warehouse has grown in leaps and bounds (some literal). We started out with a handful of professional track students, some circus chums, and an extremely high-level faculty assembled, all working long hours to see if a pro school was a possibility in NYC. It had been attempted before, without success. NY was filled with mostly recreational-style fun classes for aerial arts taught by young people with little experience. We envisioned a school that included master instructors who had been top-level performers. Why not learn Flying Trapeze from Miguel Cáceres, one of the greatest flyers and coaches of all time instead of from the person who just learned it himself? We have kept our high standards, and our dignity through a lot of sturm und drang, turning out professionals for dozens of circuses, major theatrical productions, acrobatic dance companies, TV shows, cruise ships, and everything you can think of (Ringling Bros and B&B, Cirque du Soleil, Peter Pan 360, Marvel Universe Live, Hamid Circus, Momix, to name a few…). We’ve created original shows: 26 pro-program showcases, Aerial Text Experiments, and CW has been the staging ground for new works by up-and-coming artists who hail from our pro-program. We sponsor a resident dance company, Dzul Dance, lead by the exquisite Mayan choregrapher and Graham dancer, Javier Dzul. Daredevil Bello Nock has come to walk on our wire, Big Apple star Barry Lubin teaches workshops, flying sensation Arturo Padilla has come for a month at a time to coach, circus icon Willy Pages drops by regularly to catch our flyers. We have created something very special and necessary for a lot of people who wish to have a purposeful, authentic practice, and to sculpt their lives into something of beauty.

YOU CAN STILL DONATE
All Star Night at the Warehouse may be over, but not your ability to help us stay afloat in these changing times. You may still donate to help Circus Warehouse remain in our LIC home and continue with its mission to train the next generation of circus stars and everyday people who live for the exhilarating and vibrant circus arts!
