SANCA is more than just a circus school...
We are a community!
While coaches and students may be the first thing that comes to your mind when you envision SANCA, we are multitudes! We are coaches, students, volunteers, performers, collaborators, donors, board members, educators, and administrators. We are a community of individuals who believe in the power of circus to improve the mental, emotional, and physical health of individuals so they can thrive within and outside of the center ring.
Are you looking for a job that allows you to give back to the community? Excited to work with fun and lively co-workers? Love the idea of a non-traditional career with practically unlimited personal and professional growth opportunities? Nothing is impossible when you work for the circus!
We cultivate the spectacular in unexpected places, challenge perceived differences, and celebrate our shared strength. Come find your place at SANCA!
