Circus Survey 2020

Circus Survey 2020 Report

In 2020, AYCO/ACE conducted a census of U.S. circus educators for the third time in its history. The purpose of the biennial Census project is to gather information on the sector and its scale, in order to advocate on behalf of circus educators. Anyone who identified as a circus educator and had a circus school, program, or independent consultancy was eligible to respond to the 2020 Census.
