The Greatest Show On Earth – Right Here in Sarasota – with Jennifer Mitchell of The Circus Arts Conservatory | Episode 019

Old images die hard. When I was young the circus came to town once a year. Performances of flying trapeze, wild animals from Africa, and clowns that could do the most hilarious stunts are still etched in my mind. It was strictly entertainment of course.

How times have changed! While the flying trapeze artists and clowns are still an integral part of our own circus arts here in Sarasota, the animals are long gone.

But what has been added is quite frankly an amazing array of options beyond the world-class performances that anyone can connect with directly.

Here to talk about these incredible options is Jennifer Mitchell, Executive Vice President/COO of The Circus Arts Conservatory.

In today's episode, you'll learn ...

A brief history of Sarasota's circus heritage

How The Circus Arts Conservatory started

Seasonal performances anyone can attend

Personal training to learn safe and fun aerial skills

Summer camps for youths

...and much, much more!

Thank you for stopping by today. While you're here, I encourage you to listen ... learn ... and connect!
