SASS – SANCA’s Annual Showcase Spectacular!

Every year SANCA presents a showcase of unique circus performances featuring students, alumni, staff, and friends. This showcase is one weekend only: we hold four shows, each featuring a different line up of spectacular local and internationally renowned circus performers alongside SANCAs tremendously talented student performers.

SANCA’s Annual Showcase Spectacular (known as SASS) is the accumulation of the culmination of all the hard work it takes to create new acts. Our students and staff have workshopped these new performances and are ready to take to the stage in displays of pure awesomeness! Audiences will be treated to daring displays of acrobatics, high-flying aerials, juggling, and much more!

Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday matinee lineups will be announced in early September. Performers will include SANCA’s own Youth Performance Companies Cirrus Circus, Nimbus Circus, and Stratus Circus, along with members of our staff, students, and alumni.

Our Saturday evening show features Special Guest Artists, including Terry Crane performing on rope and Vivian Tam performing on fabric, as well as a special donor reception. Full lineup will be announced in early September.

SANCA is a nonprofit organization, the only nonprofit circus school in Seattle. All proceeds from our performances, along with all donations, benefit our community programs and scholarships.
