At Moody Street Circus, we help students build skills, artistry, grace and strength in circus arts and belly dance. Heart, humor, creativity and community spirit are at the core of our teaching.

Co-created by Alexandre Sacha and Melinda Melina Pavlata, multi-generational circus and dance artists who have worked professionally in circuses, theaters and professional stages all over the world for decades, we have settled down in one beautiful place to share our family legacies with our students.
