Circus Arts in Alberta
Firefly Theatre is known for thought-provoking thrills and stunning displays of athleticism and grace. We are Alberta's pioneer Aerial Circus Arts Company. When I moved to Edmonton from the United States in 1999, there wasn't anyone here doing aerial circus arts. My husband and I co-founded Firefly Theatre and Circus in 2001, and in 2004 we began teaching aerial arts to community members. We had a very challenging time initially finding a place to hang our equipment (thank you Phoenix Gymnastics) and an even harder time finding insurance. But we persevered. Firefly Theatre and Circus is now an award winning Aerial Theatre Performance Company, appearing at events nationwide, and a circus school that teaches more than 400 community members how to fly each year! Circus has become part of the fabric of the Edmonton Arts community, and it is here to stay! Thank you Edmonton, and come fly with us!
