The Bird’s Nest: Buffalo’s First Circus Studio

The Bird’s Nest has officially launched its crowd funding campaign. This collective of creative movement and circus arts performers has come together within a 3000 square foot space, boasting 20 foot tall ceilings, in the city’s Larkin District.


The purpose is strength in numbers – to promote the activities of tumbling, meditation, aerial arts, hooping, acro yoga, acrobatics, pole dance, jugglers and spinners, and a number of other related performance arts.

Your contribution will help to renovate the space with new windows and masonry repairs, plus purchase safety equipment like mats and flooring, and training equipment such as aerial rigging and yoga blocks.

By sharing a practice space, that seconds as a performance venue, the members are able to work around the clock, while interacting with others who share the same interests and visions. Most importantly, The Bird’s Nest will be a space for teaching. This will be a year round studio, where practitioners will be able to hold hands-on classes in a safe, warm, nurturing environment (thus The Bird’s Nest).

By donating to The Bird’s Nest, you will not only be supporting these young artistic visionaries, you will also be rewarded with all sorts of perks (see here). The goal is to get this collective up off the ground, to a point where they can operate a sustainable business within an optimal environment.


To do that, they are hoping to raise $50,000. So far they have raised almost $9000, towards that goal. Ultimately, when The Bird’s Nest does get off the ground, the entire community will benefit by having so many talented creative movement and circus arts performers living, working and performing among us. 

Click here to support The Bird’s Nest – The various perks would make great holiday gifts. For $20 you get a Circus Sampler Class. For $50 you get a yoga and meditation five class pass. For $250 you get a circus sampler party for ten. These are incredibly unique and thoughtful gifts for anyone in your family that appreciates supporting the alt creative sector.
