Omnium Circus is a visionary not-for-profit organization that brings together a completely diverse cast of extraordinary talent from all four corners of the globe. We are a world class, multi-talented, multi-racial, and multi-abled circus.  We are proud to be the only truly inclusive circus! 

Currently online, Omnium is a circus for ALL, providing joy and access for families and children of all ages -- and all abilities. Laughter is for everyone and fun is a vital part of life, we each have a story- together we celebrate our diversity.

Our mission is for every person to watch and enjoy the incredible show in the way which works best for them – Typical, ASL, closed captioned, Spanish, audio described or plain language format and to identify with our performers- as they reflect the potential in each of us. Each person will be able to say “that incredible performer has my skin color, or speaks my language, or comes from a community similar to mine. That acrobat uses a wheelchair too, that clown is Deaf like me or has limbs missing--just like me or just like you.” We want to hear people marvel and say:  "Look what they can do, look what they've achieved! -- I could do that, nothing can stop me!” 

Omnium Circus is magnificence, joy and wonder. A place where all are welcome to celebrate the core humanity which unites us

We provide a free STEAM/DEI study guide containing fun supplemental information about the performers and their art, curriculum tie ins and conversation starters
