Intro and Privacy Statement

Welcome to the AYCO and ACE US Circus Survey. We want to hear from all of the companies, organizations, programs, schools, and other institutions and businesses that are spreading the love of circus in the United States. We want to know who is out there and how they’re doing what they do. With this survey, you can help us understand where circus is prevalent and supported, which organizations work with circuses and circus programs, and how we can connect new talent, established professional companies, and untapped audiences.

Along with our general business questions, there are sections with additional questions regarding performances, circus education, youth training, and insurance practices. Please SKIP any questions or sections that do not apply to your company/organization or that you do not feel comfortable answering. Answering the questions in this survey is voluntary. Results will be anonymous. We expect the survey to take about 20-30 minutes.

At the end of the survey, you will have the option to opt in to a directory of circus related programs. This directory will simply contain the company name and location and none of your other responses. If you would like additional information about the survey or our project in general, please see our info page at

Thank you very much for your time!
