Trenton Circus Squad Presents “Leaps & Bounds”

UNDER THE BIG TOP: Members of Trenton Circus Squad will display their talents at an event at Princeton Academy of the Sacred Heart on Saturday, June 22.

Trenton Circus Squad unveils its big top tent for the first time in Mercer County at “Step Right Up: Leaps & Bounds,” an evening of circus artistry and community celebration taking place at Princeton Academy of the Sacred Heart on Saturday, June 22 at 6 p.m.

“Leaps & Bounds” embodies the spirit of Trenton Circus Squad — empowering youth through circus arts and nurturing a community where everyone belongs. Participants will demonstrate their transformative journeys from eager learners to skilled performers, defying gravity and expectations.

“We’re not only celebrating the growth and achievement of our squad, but also offering a glimpse into the exciting future ahead, starting with our 2025 New Jersey summer tour,” said Executive Director Tom von Oehsen. “Come see why kids are running away to Trenton Circus Squad.”

The evening begins with interactive circus workshops and games at 6 p.m., followed by performances at 7 p.m. Carnival fare will be prepared by the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen’s culinary program. Opportunities to contribute to Trenton Circus Squad’s mission will also be available, including a silent auction, live auction, and 50/50 raffle.

Princeton Academy of the Sacred Heart is located at 1128 Great Road. For tickets or to donate to Trenton Circus Squad, visit trentoncircussquad.org.
