OUR MISSION IS TO CONTINUE A FAMILY LEGACY, INSPIRING PASSION FOR CIRCUS ARTS THROUGH TRAINING, PERFORMANCE AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH.
Circus on the ranch, here is our story... Flying Trapeze and Circus Arts School located in Myakka City, was just an idea on an 18-hour car ride that soon with hard work, passion and determination turned into reality. The school was founded in 2019 by William Pages a generational circus performer. William decided to put a halt in his 35-year performance career and focus on the vision of opening his own training school where he grew up, Myakka City. Students on the ranch, get a totally unique experience, where they learn circus arts techniques and disciplines that have been treasured for many years throughout the history of circus. Here on the Ranch, Our program is designed around the love we have for our animals and how to care and understand them. Students here not only learn many circus arts but are also taught by some of the areas most skilled and professional circus artist who have traveled the states themselves performing. Throughout the year we host many large seasonal showcases where students are given the opportunity to showcase and perform the skills they have learned in front of a parents, friends, and community. COTR also host many camps throughout the year spring, summer and winter camps.
