Rebel Circus Family
Founded in 2015 by Alice Herrick, Rebel Circus Arts was originally a personal circus training space. Soon after opening, she realized that the Philadelphia community needed a place to train and play and began to welcome the circus, acroyoga and other movement communities into the space. In 2016, Dion, Eric & Micki joined forces to cultivate the space and expand the curriculum to support the local community.
Once an old weapons factory, our space has been renovated to fit the training needs of circus performers and hobbyists. The strong industrial frame used for our rigging is perfect for aerials, adding an extra layer of safety to our operation. Safety mats are available for both aerial and acrobatic training. In addition, a variety of equipment for hand balancing, juggling, hooping, unicycling, tight rope and other skills is available.
Philly is known as 'the city of brotherly love", and here we try to emulate that same kindness; we want walking into Rebel Circus Arts to feel like your circus home. We welcome students of all levels to join in the fun!
