Circus Arts (Theater) in Costa Rica

Share your theater abilities with at-risk youth in this unique volunteering program with a circus arts organization. You’ll contribute to the community as well as learn techniques that will make you grow as a performer.


Share your theater, dance, and/or circus expertise by volunteering with a circus arts group that empowers a community in Costa Rica’s Southern Zone. Specializing in areas such as acrobatics, mime, dance, juggling, and balancing, this group works with at-risk teenagers and foreign volunteers. As you contribute your own skills, you will give the group a great resource and a new energy. You will also develop your craft under their expert guidance and gain an exceptional understanding of Costa Rican performing arts and culture. Volunteer placement requires at least ten hours a week for a minimum of one week.
