OUR BEGINNINGS

Arkansas Circus Arts, LLC  was founded in 2013 as Re-Creation Studios by entrepreneur, circus artist, and Little Rock native, Camille Rule. The first studio was located in downtown Little Rock on Main Street. It was there that we recognized our passion for  the downtown area , rebuilding  and providing creative community opportunities. Our original location was a hub for creative movement and circus style activity.  After one year of business in that location, it was time to move and ACA  re-located to CrossFit Little Rock at the bottom of Cantrell Hill. In May of 2016, with the need for expansion and with a new business partner, Rebeka Poland, fellow circus arts and founder of Southern Lights Flow Retreat, Arkansas Circus Arts found its new home nestled in downtown Little Rock on Cumberland Street. Throughout this time from 2013 to present, ACA made it a point to be at many community events and share their passion for circus arts with Little Rock through performance.  


OUR PRODUCTIONS

In November 2014, ACA hosted their first variety show, The Little Rock Variety Society, with the help of Cirque Roots owner and Arkansas native , Brittany Briley,  at the Ron Robinson Theater in downtown Little Rock. The show SOLD OUT before doors even opened and was a wild success.  In June of 2015, ACA hosted Enchanted Flame, a summer solstice event and production at Wildwood Park for the Arts.  Patrons of all walks of life came to enjoy this local circus troupe
